With incomparable range and power, Donna Summer defined the '70s pop music generation. And while others languished in the wake of the infamous "death of disco" in 1979, Summer boldly outlived those now-hallowed days and carved a niche among the world's leading song stylists, with a sterling string of hits that range from the rhythmically dynamic to the warmly spiritual.
The success of "Love To Love You Baby" triggered a series of Donna Summer albums that would brilliantly blend the primal groove urgency of disco and funk with symphonic strings and soaring, dramatic vocals.
Hardcore club DJs took delight in expansive epics like "Spring Affair," "Try Me (I Know We Can Make It)," and "Could It Be Magic," while pop radio programmers indulged in less lengthy but equally compelling odes like "I Love You," "MacArthur Park," and "Hot Stuff." And "Last Dance," the Academy Award-winning theme of the film Thank God It's Friday, remains a shining moment of Donna's career.
