Donna Summer has a new album out, as a Disco Deejay I should be excited? It is not a DISCO album! But to celebrate another album from the Original Disco Diva, We here at DISCO-DISCO want to know, WHICH IS YOUR FAVORITE DONNA SUMMER SONG!! One song!! Then tell us why? And to be true to our name, it has to be from her DISCO DAYS!!!

There were so many!! My favorite one is a tough question indeed. I though about it for a minute, it has to be one? Then it has to be the first one!!-- "Love To Love You Baby" put her on the map. It was also a catalyst for Disco itself, as every radio station jumped on it. What I loved about it, was how emotional, and soulful her vocals were. Then add the incredible orchestration by Giorgio Moroder, and it put people on the dance floor. It was a relatively slow song, but no-one danced it like a slow song. People even danced a slower HUSTLE to it. Yes, it is my favorite. the moaning also made it special!!

"I FEEL LOVE"

that's my vote----always a great height of the night song.
Hard to choose cause Donna had so many great one's.
2nd Choice-->"TRY ME"

LIVE!! MacArthur Park has to be mine. It was the peak of the Disco era!! It was downhill after that song, for disco and Donna! I understand that there were many great songs by her, but that was my favorite!!

My wife agrees with CHULO, she is adamant about it too! I love that song as well. I remember deejaying on a Cruise Ship that sailed the Caribbean Islands. Every three or four days a new group of tourists would dance to MacArthur Park. It was THE BOMB on the High Seas!

Hard question here...
Donna had many wonderful tracks, besides all the ones already mentioned I always had a soft spot for "Rumor Has It"...

Disco-on !

Very, very tough, as it changes from day to day.

"Love to love you baby" is still The track for me but maybe too obvious.

I'll go for "Bad girls", Disco with a Funky flavour, Donna in great form and the horns are so horny on that track!

That is one fantastic picture!! Donna had so many great DISCO hits. Choosing one is hard, very difficult! Here is another one no-one has yet mentioned, "Try Me(I know we can make it)"-- It was HUGE, popular and packed the floor everytime I played it!! I always wanted to try!!

great pic...no underwear?? I wonder what her Creator might think of that??

anyway, her songs and performances were always far more important then what she wore on stage

my fav DS song must be 'Mc Arthur's Park'...her vocal delivery and the buildup of the song and the live excitement is still unbeatable in terms of Disco music. And it came at the very right moment too....

I love this song, even after all those years. IMO I think her version beats the original song to the punch
does anybody knows who sang the original song??
but that's some other thread I guess... :idea:

Hands Down..MacArthur Park Suite
It's so Theatrical and It moves me..I can dance to it but I also enjoy just listening to it as well..
That's the difference between a good Disco song and a great Disco song..

This is a big endorsement. Our Diva chooses this Divas best song. And She says,"HANDS DOWN"!! So can anyone argue to us that this isn't her best?? I could! But I defer for now. Great Choice, even better song!

Best song of miss LaDonna. That's not really hard for me ; without any hesitation : Hot Stuff. Maybe the most wellknown song, but still the best. The power in that song just rocks my boat. Especially the intro/beginning of the song when you listen it on 12" EP ! Oh Man !

That's one more advantage of 12" EP, besides the extra power it gives you, it also gives you extra jingles or intro's or outro's,.... Songs last longer, so extra ... ( pardon my french, but I don't know how to say it in Englisch ; hope you understand what I mean ).

so gimme some hot stuff donna !

Well, I don't agree with that choice. HOT STUFF was far behind, in a contest as to her best. LAST DANCE, I FEEL LOVE, TRY ME(I Know We Can Make It) and even LOVE TO LOVE YOU BABY are all better. In fact, I like them above McCARTHUR PARK. Even BAD GIRLS is above HOT STUFF. I think the argument could go on forever. What do you think. WHAT??? You want ONE!!! You guys never give me just one?? Okay, her first! LOVE TO LOVE YOU BABY. Why?? It started her, made EVERYONE take notice. And that song lasted FOREVER!! Still puts people on the dance floor! But my personal FAVORITE," I LOVE YOU"!!
