Endless (Donna) Summer -Mr B Guest Post

My boss said this morning, (Friday), that 1976 would not have been the same without Donna Summer.

Whenever I hear 'I Feel Love' it brings back a memory like a scene from The Twilight Zone.

I can't remember whether I was going back home from a friends' or the pub, but a thick sea mist had come in off the Solent, so as you couldn't see one side of the common to the other.
Through the damp, white-grey air came the sound of Giorgio Moroder and the voice of Donna Summer. These were the days of the ghetto blaster and it was turned up loud.

It seemed to be coming from the seafront side of the common and moving slowly away, like Sherlock Holmes crossing the moor at night in The Hound of the Baskervilles.

I felt as if I were in a disco episode of Scooby Doo.

Maybe it was the Lighthouse Keeper or the fairground owner. One thing was for sure...this pesky kid was not going to investigate.

But it sounded great.
