Donna-Summer-Cover.jpgI honestly just cried a little when I saw this. TMZ reports that Queen of Disco Donna Summer died today at the age of 63 after a battle with cancer.

When I open for my night job in the kitchen of the 9:30 Club, The Best of Donna Summer is my soundtrack. I LOVE Donna Summer.

I was lucky enough to see her live a few years ago at Wolf Trap, an outdoor music venue near DC. My partner, David, our friends, and I were seated on the lawn behind a group of very drunk Hungarians who kept passing around a bottle of J├Ągermeister. They were awesome, but Donna was the amazing.

So Donna, may I have a last dance? Check out some of her greatest after the jump and share your memories in the comments. I know at least one of you out there saw her at Studio 54.
