In the 70 Donna Summer ruled the dance music. I think Once Upon A Time is my favorite album by her. Scooter is my favorite Techno group. I liked many artists in the timeframe. Alphaville had my favorite album-Salvation. Electronic also had many of my favorites. Orbital was a very influential group. My favorite group-Ultravox(not the first version), but the Midge Ure second version(not U-Vox) and version 3 and 4. Midge Ure's 4 albums-Vienna, Lament, Rage in Eden, and Quartet are in my top 10.
I have quite a few Donna Summer albums, going all the way back to Love to Love you, Baby. For some reason, I never got "Once Upon a Time," which is a double-album. She was definitely queen of disco for a long while, and people tend to forget she was a great singer, not just a flash in the pan. I continued to buy Donna's LPs well into the 80s. I was a young college student during the disco craze, and I'm not ashamed to say I did quite a bit of boogying in discos and enjoyed every minute of it. I'll tell you one thing: I wasn't fat, that's for sure1
They used to be a favorite of mine during the 90s/early 00s, but since Ferris left in 97, they lost something in their sound/style that never came back and as of winter 2003, I have not really been following them all that much, but I still have a lot of good/nostalgic memories of their music. Gotta love the energy they used to have in the mid 90s, and it is all very "LIVE"
At least, they seemed to have a good sense of humor, or used to, as seen in this great and funny clip where they are doing a dance band version of their mega hit Move Your Ass:
For it is written: the inhabitants of the Earth have been made drunk with her blood. And I saw her sent upon a hairy beast and she held forth a golden chalice full of the filthiness of fornications. And upon her forehead was written: "Behold I am the great mother of harlots and all abominations of the Earth."
