30 Day Song Challenge- Day 8- An Underrated Song: “Cold Love”- Donna Summer.
LaDonna Gaines was a music game changer- from 1975-80 she not only had 11 Top 10 hits- 10 of those 11 were Top 5 and 4 going to #1- but Donna and her producer The Father of Disco- Giorgio Moroder changed and influenced music- Madonna, Lady Gaga, Rihanna were influenced by her and even David Bowie claimed her as an influence.

When The Wanderer came out in 1980- the title track went to #3 but the follow up- was at least considering Donna Summer’s track record on the charts – a flop- “Cold Love” peaked at #33. I think “Cold Love” is her greatest song. In the past 40 years you still will hear her music on the radio but I don’t think I’ve heard “Cold Love” on the radio since 1980. I think that would qualify as a criminally underrated song.
