It's true, I thought that if I was Donna Summer's daughter, I would have a better life. Somehow it made sense in my head. Even though my mother would threaten to put me up for adoption many times, she never did, making it impossible for Mme. Summers (my real mommy) to adopt me.
I pretty much grew up listening to "disco". There were a lot of tunes I could not fit on the list. I also had to use the radio edit time for most of the songs because we know that those disco tunes lasted a long,long time.
I grew up with Ziggy, Zoom and I preferred Electric Company (when Morgan Freeman was The Count) over Sesame Street.
My parents went to Friday & Saturday night disco parties while my sister and I stayed up late to watch scary films.
I remember when Burger King first opened it's doors and my first film I sneaked into was The In-Laws.
When Elvis and John Lennon died, there was a silent vigil that was hosted by the TV news.
One Thanksgiving we ate Chinese food and saw the film Reds. I fell asleep and woke up wanting to puke. I got food poisoning that night. I blamed it on the eggroll.
I loved frozen dinners, Tang, Snoopy and disco.
I got over the whole Donna Summer being my mom thing--so did my mother.

Track Description:
When this song came out, I couldn't wait to buy the 45. I did and since my record player sucked it skipped all the time- so I licked the 45 and returned it and said that it was defective and I needed a new one. The guy thought I spilled milk on it. I denied it. I opted for my money back , which was 6.99 or something like that.

I ain't gonna lie, this is TIGHT. E-40's early group, The Click, sampled "Street Life". Well, hell, a lot of these songs have been sampled. Anyhow, it's nice to see some soul jazz up in this piece.

I love this. Back in the day my then Brother in law used to sell deleted albums at 20 for 5 pounds at English outdoor markets. I used to go with him sometimes to make a bit of extra money, and several of these tracks were on the albums he had, like the Anita Ward, Rose Royce, Bonnie Pointer, etc. Great great descriptions!
