>> R.I.P Donna Summer

Donna Summer died yesterday, 17th of May after fighting a long battle with cancer. The five-time Grammy winner rose to the top of the charts during the 70s and arguably did more than anyone to make disco cool.

Like the King of Pop or the Queen of Soul, Donna Summer had the title fitting of musical royalty too — the Queen of Disco.

Here is Donna with Giorgio Moroders innovative production of this disco-style song, "I Feel Love" recorded in 1977 with an entirely synthesized backing track, spawned imitators in the disco genre, and was influential in the development of techno.
