Last dance




the 
summer 
sizzled to your 

orgasmic singing

got us all blushing and excited 

who could forget those disco nights, 
hot stuff was a rash, untempered seduction 

it was your throaty, lusty vocals that got us
thinking we want to be bad bad girls

stepping out for some mindless fun   
dimming all the throbbing lights    

swaying hips to pulsing beat
shaking inhibitions away   

hold me closer
let's dance 

tonight

Farewell to the Disco Queen:   Donna Summer:   RIP (1948 - 2012);   (I am also sad that Robin Gibbs died.)    Here is one of her famous piece, Last Dance.   


An interesting article I read about her:  Queen of the Disco by Mirth and Motivation

  2. Oh, yes, I remember those days of wanting to be a 'bad girl.' Was fun to think about; but, if truth be told, in reality I never quite achieved it, except in my mind. But, yes, those disco nights....

  3. She did get us all hot and bothered with her sexy sighs and songs. Great piece of prose Grace, sexy, and a lovely tribute to Donna Summer.
    Very sad that she has passed.

  18. An apt tribute to an amazing performer, and a torch that lights up the loss we all feel at her passing.

  19. Well done, a great tribute.

  20. Those nights were always so full of possibility, but as a young man never panned out quite the way I wanted. Dancing at the Colorado Social Club when the drinking age was still 18.........those were the days, and those were some songs.....and that picture up there looks like Gina Gershon from the back...she is one of my all time faves even though I dont think that is her...in my mind it is...lol. Great Stuff, I WILL dsend you the MP3 this evening, sorry I forgot.

  21. Wonderful memorial poem to Ms. Summer. Those of us who where teens in those days cannot escape the intensity of memory her songs induce.

  22. Nice the way you worked her songs into the poem so seamlessly. Very sweet tribute.

  23. I love that song.

    This is spicy, girl! Music is a dangerous drug:
    "it was your throaty, lusty vocals that got us
    thinking we want to be bad bad girls"

  24. bad bad girls, that's so good.
