Remembering Donna Summer: My Top 10 Songs by the "Queen of Disco"



Anyone who reads DEEP DISH knows that I'm a big fan of disco, which I grew up listening to. And it deeply saddens me to write this post about Donna Summer, who died earlier today at age 63. She was the "Queen of Disco", and I still have on vinyl her 1979 album, On the Radio, which featured all of her greatest hits up to that point. I loved her music - and below I've selected my 10 favorite songs by her (in order of preference) to celebrate her life and career.

Mike Douglas interview on May 4, 1976.



Dick Clark interview on American Bandstand on May 27, 1978.



Johnny Carson interview on The Tonight Show on June 14, 1978.



1) "Last Dance" featured in the 1978 film, Thank God It's Friday (#3 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart)




2) "No More Tears (Enough Is Enough)" (#1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1979)



3) "MacArthur Park" (#1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1978)



4) "On the Radio" (#5 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1980)



5) "Dim All the Lights" (#2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1979)




6) "Could It Be Magic" (#52 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1976)



7) "Heaven Knows" (#4 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1979)



8) "Hot Stuff" (#1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1979)



9) "She Works Hard for the Money" (#3 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1983)



10) "Love to Love You Baby" (#2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1975)

She is my girl - loved her from her first US single to her last.

I'm devastated at her loss.

Thanks for these older clips.
