Man, I was born in the wrong era. What I would give to be a young adult in the late seventies, going to discos and dancing to that music. Ahhh, enchantment is definitely the word to use UrbanA. RIP Ms. Summer.


When i stop,look and listen to her, i'm reminded of those marshmellow summers of 1975/76, what a enchantment this woman songs brought me, RIP, siren;-)

Thank you, Donna Summer. Well done.


R.I.P sweet sister.

Her beautiful family have all my condolences.


I remember watching "Thank God It's Friday" a couple of years back when it aired on TCM's Underground. Definitely a cheesy movie but definitely ripe for a remake…. So sad to see her gone…
