Donna Summer - Bad Girls Grammy Winner! RIAA Certified Multi-Platinum! Click here to see this CD at!

By Bill Holdship

Donna Summer was disco's queen, but the general consensus in 1979 when the diva and her longtime producer-Svengali Giorgio Moroder came up with this seminal work was that "disco sucks." Anyway, that was the perspective in rock circles. Bad Girls, however, overcame great resistance to earn both critical and popular success. Originally released as a two-record set, Bad Girls is a concept album about--what else?--S-E-X. The album saw the dynamic duo incorporating rock influences into their disco motifs ("Hot Stuff," the title track), and, in turn, influencing dance music for years to come. The ballads, meanwhile demonstrated that Summer really could sing. The rock sound became even more pronounced on the next two LPs--The Wanderer and She Works Hard for the Money. Bad Girls, however, was Summer's first step toward artistic respectability.

"i pretty much agree. she has always been under-rated as an artist. automatically, if you are associated with Disco, you were not taken seriously. She is an excellent song writer and 30 years later, there still arent many singers today who can match her vocal power. Donna made a modern masterpiece with this album. blending,pop,rock,r&b, and disco, she became a "legit" pop star."


"The author's facts are a little sketchy. While the review is decent, and Summer did certainly begin to incorporate a harder sound to her music, a "Greatest Hits" package followed this album. Two new songs included the very disco duet with Barbra Steisand "Enough is Enough (No More Tears)", and "On The Radio". Following the aforementioned "The Wanderer", Summer worked with producer Quincy Jones on 1982's self-titled release, which was very much an R&B romp fest, and in many ways, a springboard for Jones' production concepts for the album "Thriller". I believe Summer's critical praise more likely dates back to her "I Remember Yesterday" album, solely on the single "I Feel Love". Certainly the author forgets Summer's Oscar win for "Last Dance" which predates "Bad Girls" by a year."
