5.0 out of 5 stars Donna Summer's Music High!, May 4, 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Once Upon A Time (Audio CD)
Possibly her best album. Pete and Giorgio (or Giorgio and Pete, if you must) really helped to define the diva on this one. But this is not Donna Summer having her hand held. She is not only singing her heart out, but co writing and the creator of the whole concept of the girl lost in the big city. It is Donna's story, for crying out load.
The tale is of Donna Summer, working girl, waiting for her Prince charming to come and rescue her in the big city.
The songs just all blend together so well, and also help her very form style to style with ease. I could describe every song with love, but I will try and skip a few highlights and just include the best of the best.
"Faster And Faster To Nowhere" is a scary and almost exciting track that has Donna lost in the city and trying to escape through her "trip"
"Say Soemthing Nice" is the disco song that could. Makes you wnat to get up and dance and lyrics like "Don't you understand it when A person tries.." Donna sings in her diamonds and furs. So great
"Now I Need You" is just an event with those background singers. The song is just so huge.
"Working The Midnight Shift" is a great little dance number that makes anyones night go by faster, even if it does tend to depress.
"A Man Like You" and "Sweet Romance" show Donna's great vocals.
"Dance Into My Life" with all of its vocal effects and its starting out as a ballad, proves to be the funest song on the set.
"Rumour Has It" tells a cute story plus the song is a great little vibe with the background signers. Very cleaver. And the fast chorus with lines like "You never know what you won until you've lost", is just great.
Everything about this album is just as great to listen to know as it must have been years ago. The great feel of love and the great escape from her depression of the city. I love it. You must buy this album.
