I love this song and always have--it's a song you can listen to for decades still seeking the nuanced answers to the existential questions that it asks. We all have so many sub personalities inside of us, and some of us are a bit tortured by them. I love how this song asks the big questions (of the subject "Gloria"): what will she choose to do with her life and the possible consequences of certain choices. "A-ha-ha, a-ha-ha, Gloria, how's it gonna go down? Will you meet him on the main line, or will you catch him on the rebound? Will you marry for the money, take a lover in the afternoon? Feel your innocence slipping away, don't believe it's comin' back soon..." Innocence lost cannot be regained. The lyrics of this song are rife with meaning and Laura Branigan sings so soulfully, with great emotion, that it is palpable. This is a great upbeat song dealing with shadow subjects of the reality of human life. Pure music brilliance + you can dance to it. I like to listen to this at the gym. It's a great song for when I'm feeling splendiforously happy or despairingly sad. Happy listening~*

in my opinion, this song is in the top three Italian as well as Italian-American anthems every made. once again, laura branigan's voice still haunts me after all of these years. it is a shame that she had to die so young. in any event, this song is powerful and roaring. the music is fab. the lyrics are urgent and passionate. laura speaks the tale of a true friend. it's a must addition to your music library. purchase and enjoy!

I loved this song when it first came out and this appears to be the original version I first heard. However, music tastes are purely subjective and what I like some other person may hate. You should always listen to the sample clips before buying any song, anywhere.

I'm not a disco fan, but this American adaption of the earlier European hit rocks and is a great showcase of Laura Branigan's incredible voice with her great range, power and expression. A wonderfully gifted singer.

Is there anyone who can belt out this song ":Gloria"?

Laura has few equals with her voice quality.

I'm so sorry that her career was cut short due to a fatal illness.

It seems sort of silly to write a review about a song you bought. I should think most people buy a song because they like it. This gets it off my review list anyway.

A "must have" on your playlist of all-time easy rock classics! This is one of those "turn up the volume" songs whenever it plays on the radio.

Straight from the 80's, a great record to play at dance parties. Gets the people dancing and movin'. Along with Celebration and YMCA.
