What the heck is going on???  The music world suffered a double loss of royalty today as the “Godfather of Go-Go” Chuck Brown and the “Queen of Disco” Donna Summer have both ascended to the grand dancefloor in the sky.  2012 is truly shaping up to be “the year that music died”.

While I was tempted to go the more obvious “She Works Hard For The Money” YouTube route, I’ve opted to post La Summer’s “I Feel Love” given its status as a landmark record whose (1977!) production pioneered today’s electronic dance music genre.  It sounds just as trippy and forward-thinking now as I’m sure it did back in the day.  And of course, no self-respecting summer backyard BBQ playlist in the D.C./Baltimore area would be complete without the inclusion of Sir Brown’s signature jam, “Bustin’ Loose”.  Pour a little our for Chuck ‘n’ Donna and their aural efforts that helped you bolster your boogie.

Rest in peace Donna.

Rest in peace Chuck.
