YMMV / Donna Summer

  • Crowning Music of Awesome:
    • The Bad Girls album, especially the title track and "Hot Stuff". "She Works Hard for the Money" and "On the Radio" qualify as well.
    • And of course, the immortal "I Feel Love" from I Remember Yesterday. There are no other tracks that made Brian Eno say that it's the future.
  • Breakaway Pop Hit: "Last Dance" from Thank God It's Friday, in which she both acted and sang.
  • Career Resurrection: Her single "Bad Girls" brought her back in the limelight in mid-2004, thanks to Arrested Development and Portia DeRossi's pole dancing.
    • There was also a brief one in the late 90's, thanks to The Full Monty and its use of "Hot Stuff."
  • Growing the Beard: "Last Dance" her first hit single where she sang in her full voice instead of the cooing, moaning of her previous hits and led to other hits in that vocal style "On the Radio", "Bad Girls", "Hot Stuff" and "She Works Hard For The Money".
  • Memetic Mutation: "Lookin' for some HOT STUFF baby this evening! I need some HOT STUFF baby tonight!"
  • Signature Song: "I Feel Love," "Last Dance," and "Hot Stuff".
