I grew up in the seventies and early eighties. Donna Summer provided the soundtrack for my childhood and early adolescemce. This collection includes classics like "On The Radio" and "No More Tears" and "Dim All The Lights". I could never get tired of listening to these excellent disco dance songs. Another gem is the song "She Works Hard For The Money". This song is an anthem for working mothers every where. There are newer songs on this collection. They are not as well known, but they are just as enjoyable. "I Will Love For Love" is a hopeful tune. This song gives me hope that I will find a special woman to love me. "I Will Go With You" is a great song about loyalty and friendship. "This Time I Know It's For Real" is a newer classic song. This song makes me happy. The music of Donna Summer is timeless.

Superb collection by one of the brightest stars to emerge from 70's.
There's just no question about it.  Donna Summer was one of a handful of shining stars to emerge from an otherwise lackluster decade in the history of American popular music.  Lots of people agree that the 1970's left a lot to be desired musically. Having said that, between 1975 and 1989 Donna Summer would place an impressive total of 31 singles on Billboard's Hot 100 Singles chart.  Of these, nearly half hit the Top Ten while 4 of her records made …

About this song

Wiki

There is no dearth of Donna Summer compilations, dating back to 1979's On the Radio (originally a two-LP set, then on one CD) and including 1993's double-CD The Donna Summer Anthology. The Journey: The Very Best of Donna Summer seems intended to replace and update 1995's single-disc Endless Summer for American consumers. It contains all 14 of the singer's Top Ten pop hits in their short single edits (an important consideration given that Summer was a disco diva whose tracks often went on at considerable length), including 1989's "This Time I Know It's for Real," licensed from Atlantic Records, as well as a selection of four of her many other Hot 100 hits, including 1999's number 79 chart entry "I Will Go With You (Con Te PartirĂ³)," licensed from Epic Records. The main disc concludes with two new songs, "That's the Way" and "Dream-a-Lot's Theme (I Will Live for Love)," produced by Giorgio Moroder, who produced most of Summer's hits of the 1970s and early '80s. The former is a modest pop song, but the latter is an ambitious disco anthem that aims to match the team's former glory, and largely succeeds. It is expanded past nine minutes on the bonus disc of extended remixes, along with a few old favorites and another new one, "You're So Beautiful," a tribal-styled dance track that was added to the album at the last minute, clocking in at nearly 11 minutes. Summer aficionados will be forced to pick the album up for its new material, but more casual fans who already have one of the ...
