Dropping you this line to give you peace...

RIP Donna Summer... Sick, sick vocalist and writer in her prime. I couldn't follow her blah pop entreaties post-Moroder, but she and the München/LA axis helped kick-start the future as much (or more, if you consider the titanic 1977 single "I Feel Love") as anyone. And now, I can't stop listening to side four of the Bad Girls album, with its three astonishing songs ("Our Love," "Lucky," and "Sunset People") that foreshadowed just about everything cool (and I mean everything) that followed. Plus, her robot dance circa '78 was insanely sexy. For three years, she could do no wrong...
