Happy 60th birthday, Donna Summer!

Posted on

She may be the Queen of Disco, but what’s amazing about Donna Summer is while many of her songs are quintessential examples of that era, they have maintained a freshness that keeps them relevant in dance music even today (just ask Beyonce, who did her best Summer impersonation for the single “Naughty Girl,” which is little more than a remake of the Queen’s “Love to Love You Baby”). Check out the clip below of Summer’s classic “I Feel Love” and see what I mean. Summer isn’t out of the game, either, of course — just last year she released her first album in 17 years, Crayons (clip for “Stomp Your Feet,” her hit single off the record, after the jump). Happy 60th, Donna!
