Last dance for the queen of disco, Donna Summer, she died today at 63 from lung cancer. A five time Grammy winner, in the 70’s and 80’s she topped the charts with hits like Hot Stuff, Bad Girls, and Last Dance, from the 1978 movie, Thank God It’s Friday, which won an Oscar for best original song.
Other hits included Enough is Enough, No More Tears, her duet with Barbra Streisand, and MacArthur Park Suite, an 18 minute disco classic from her Live and More album that made her the first female artist to have a #1 single and #1 album on the Billboard charts at the same time.
For years DJ’s across the United States closed their clubs and shows with Last Dance. Maybe it’s time to start that tradition again.
