Most of my friends know that I intensely dislike Disco music. The 70’s weren’t the favorite decade in my life. However, there is one exception to that rule….Donna Summer. I owned every album (yes, I am showing my age), and I played them over and over again.
Today, I have every Donna Summer song on my Ipod. I listen to them over and over. I never seem to tire of “Last Dance,” “On The Radio,” “Hot Stuff,” or “She Works Hard For The Money.” I know all the words and love to sing with her, albeit a little off-key.
I had planned on writing the next part in our St. Louis story yesterday, but felt too sad when heard of Ms. Summer’s passing. It was a little surreal to think she was here in Naples, Florida during her final moments. I heard she loved it here. Our Endless Summer days took a break for 2 straight days this week and it had rained most of the time. Now I know why.
I’m glad she had so many hits that will live on in my Ipod, albums, and perhaps a few 8tracks as well. I am thankful that because of her I do like a little “Disco” now and then. Thank you again Ms. Summer.
