R.I.P. Donna Summer

Following the most soulful weekend of my life, this week brings the tragic news of the death of Donna Summer. I really don’t know how to describe what I feel when these musical legends pass away. I’ve literally grown up with her music which has bookmarked my teenage years and beyond. A Horse Meat Disco Sunday night is not complete without a Donna song. I saw the tweets and sat there all tingly and sad for some time at my desk. There’s so many classics, in fact looking at her work tonight, there’s little that does’t seem like a classic. Even the Stock Aitken Waterman album sounds good tonight.

The song I’ve posted is possibly lesser known and shows that she wasn’t just about the disco hits.  It’s from her 1982 album produced by Quincy Jones, the Billy Strayhorn jazz standard ‘Lush Life.
