Donna Summer: 1948-2012
When I heard of the death of Donna Summer this morning, my thoughts went immediately to my best friend Keith LeBlanc, who lost his battle with cancer two years ago. Keith was a huge fan of “Lady Donna” (as I heard him call her on occasion). Keith opened my eyes to the ‘deeper cuts’ of Donna Summer, and I owe him for that.A quick search of Youtube brought up several of her hits…… and I’ll just leave these here for you.

My favorite Donna Summer song: On the Radio
Her music influenced decades of audiophiles and choreographers: from radio djs to musicians, from pole dancers to club djs. Many (if not most) of her songs were sampled/remixed for night clubs. Here’s a remix of Power of Love:
Keep singing, Lady Donna, for you have a whole new audience. Tell Keith I said hello…
