R.I.P Disco Queen
This is an updated post: Thanks to Cajun Samurai and Justin, I have been told of the connection between Donna Summer and anime. I will admit that I am an anime fan that did not watch Pokemon (yeah, I know, how is that possible?) but my goodness, the song is so beautiful! Cajun Samurai posted a video of the song. I initially stated that Donna Summer was not an anime fan that I knew of and this still may be true but she contributed to the anime community. This bit of information made me even sadder than I was initially.
I do have interests outside of anime and music is one of them. Though Donna Summer was before my time, I still loved her music. Disco was dead by the time I was born but somehow I stumbled across Donna Summer. This wasn’t too difficult as her songs were played everywhere, loudspeakers in grocery stores, ballgames, movies, you name it. This flashy woman with the beautiful voice and the rocking moves had music that spanned the ages. With her svelte figure, fantastic weaves, rocking guitar riffs in her songs, and letting you know she worked hard for the money, Donna Summer was one of my idols. I remember thinking as a little girl how cool Donna Summer looked and how I wished that I could pull off her sultry look. Of course, I didn’t realize until I was older how sexy her lyrics were; I just thought she sounded good. My mother always said I had an old soul but it was funny as a child that I listened to Donna Summer while my friends knew all the rap lyrics. Well, Donna Summer, you will be missed but I’m glad you left music for me to continue to remember you by. Toot toot, honey.
