Known In The '70s For: Being a disco singer
With the release of "Love to Love You Baby" in late 1975, Donna Summer began her reign as the Queen of Disco (she also claimed the title "The First Lady of Love"). As such, she was a regular presence at Studio 54. She put out five more albums before the end of the '70s, the last being Bad Girls, a tribute of sorts to prostitutes that featured Summer herself depicted as a hooker on the cover.
She was freakishly prolific, especially considering that Bad Girls and 1977's Once Upon a Time were double albums. When she released a greatest hits collection at the close of the decade it was— guess what—a double album, containing a new song, "On the Radio," which became her fifth consecutive top-five hit.
