Donna Summer passed away today.

I'm not a huge Donna Summer fan, because I'm not a huge Disco fan.  But I do have several of her hits: Hot Stuff, I Feel Love, and Love To Love You Baby...  I remember all the controversy when Love To Love You came out, that it was too "suggestive".  Which naturally caught the attention of my (then) 15 year old mind.  But I never heard the full album-side version until a few months ago, on youtube.

Donna Summer had 20 Top 40 hits, including 11 Top 5's between 1975 and 1980 (including 4 chart toppers).  Thus earning the title of Queen of Disco.  She was 63.
