I wonder if she took her own life. I heard that she was pretty depressed that someone left her cake out in the rain.

imprimere: Mr Talbot: imprimere: G-Rot: "No idea who this is, don't care. No need for a news flash"


Not news: you're a dick.

Why? Because they don't care that some pseudo-celebrity died? Most people who actually 'care' that some singer/actor/entertiner died, are seriously lacking substance in life.

I happen to agree that it is not NewsFlash worthy. NewsFlash should be reserved for something that actually affects your life in a meaningful way. If this does (and you're not a relative), your life sucks.

Giving a shiat about other people is wrong, and means you lack substance in life. Got it.

Listen to you people. Giving a shiat? Really? Tell me about her religious, political or social views? Name all the cool things she did (aside from sing songs) for people. Without running to the internet right now and researching, tell me what you really know about her. Go ahead.

Saying "that sucks, I'll miss her music" is perfectly OK. Saying, "don't know who she is and don't care" is perfectly OK too - if a bit cold toward fellow human beings.

Pretending like it's worthy of NEWS FLASH - THIS JUST IN, IT WILL MAKE YOU WANT TO STOP WHAT YOU'RE DOING - is just stupid (to me). Acting like you really give a sh*t - and unless you've tried contacting her recently to tell her how much her music means and that you wish she was making more - is disingenuous at best.

Yeah, I'm the a-hole. You are all the compassionate, cool people. Got it.

/if you are realistic, you must be an ITG


Wow, the thread-shiatters are getting passionate nowadays.

Jackpot777: The Iron duke: I went though a Disco phase in Jr. High (around 1977\8) Was exposed to it by older sister and her friends. Yes i danced at disco's when i was 13, yes i wore "those pants and unbuttoned shirts" , and i got more tail than any other guy but Leaf Garret during that time.
Had a 19 year old girl friend at 14 , we met on the dance floor and she dragged me outside to her car, and introduced me to a proper hummer..
Thank you Donna Summers, for all the mammories...

Quite a vehicle for a nineteen year-old girl to be driving, a proper Hummer.


Well i believe it was a Pinto, but a Time traveling Disco babe in a wafer thin, slit dress Sexily enticing young men and draining them of their essence in her shape shifting time\sex machine sounds so much better...Yeah..im going to go with that..

Lenny_da_Hog: Rubber Biscuit: There go the seventies.

I wonder how this happened.

I lived through it, and don't see how it happened.

When I think of the seventies (and again, I was THERE, man), I think of Zappa, Zepplin, Yes, Floyd, CSN(Y), Jethro Tull, James Taylor, Queen, Heart...

But here we are in the future, and when people say "Seventies Music," they really mean disco.

It's not fair, man.


Yeah, that's the tricky part of "pop-culture". I guess the popular part is often remembered as who had the most outrageous costumes. Still, when I hear the term 70's Music, I think of girls in bell bottoms with flowers in their hair, spinning in a grassy field to I'd Really Love To See Ya Tonight, Ventura Highway, Temptation Eyes, In A Young Girl's Mind, etc. too.

That is a hell of a top ten.

two things standout....Neil Sedaka on the list with a song that, I think, was released in the 60's and the "Theme from SWAT" That's hilarious because I probably bought it.


The Neil Sedaka song was a slow-tempo version of "Breaking Up is Hard to Do", much like Eric Clapton's unplugged version of "Layla" made that song a hit a second time.

Lollipop165: brap: Oopsie.

I don't care who you are, if this song doesn't make you shake your caboose you better get your pulse checked.

You know, considering that song is what? 35 years old? It holds up really well, all things considered.

Probably my fave Donna Summer song too...

Although I will always have a soft spot for the #1 song from the week I was born:

Ooh I had forgot about that one. My office has basically turned into a Donna Summer tribute dance party.

No way to play it at the moment though.



Target actually sells relatively cheap record players (including one that will rip your vinyl into MP3s...pretty cool.

2012-05-17 01:36:18 PM
All this is so obvious I feel dumb writing it. But it bears reiteration in the year of Saturday Night Fever and its pathetic, homophobic rebuttal, "Disco Sucks." Whatever the real dangers and deficiencies of disco as a genre and a mentality, some disco records do more than just succeed on their own terms, as dance music--some of them are wonderful rock and roll. The Best of the Trammps (ineligible for the poll, like all best-ofs) is rough, driving soul in the great tradition of Wilson Pickett; the Bee Gees' side of Saturday Night Fever (which broke--broke the ice, broke records, broke the bank--in 1978 but is ineligible because it was released in 1977) is inspired silliness in the great tradition of "Carrie-Anne" and "Itchychoo Park." But the disco-sucks crowd can't hear that any more than they can hear a Charlie Parker solo or a Joni Mitchell song. These assholes are such fanatics that they seize upon the first hint of synthesized percussion or rhythmic strings or chukka-chukka guitar--hell, the first lilt--as proof that anybody from Bowie to Poco has "gone disco," though most often the discos could care less even when it's true. They turn the fatuity, monotonousness, and wimpoid tendencies of the worst (or most monofunctional) disco into an excuse for rejecting all contemporary black music except perhaps reggae, and I bet they don't listen much to Otis Redding either. One hesitates to cry racism. But this is certainly a good imitation.

Ah. That makes sense. As a side note - My wife and I went with my mother (65 years old at the time) to see Eric Clapton live. Walking back to the car after the show, My mom said "he didn't play Layla" It was the highlight of the show, but it wasn't the acoustic version so she didn't recognize it.

News flash!! Random person dead


Wikipedia: She was the first artist to have three consecutive double albums reach number one on the US Billboard chart, and she also charted four number-one singles in the United States within a 13-month period.

But, hey, we'll celebrate you and your three consecutive trolled Fark threads and four Boobiess in threads when you die as well, Mr. Troll.
