Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn February 1st 1976, "Love to Love You Baby" by Donna Summer peaked at #2 (for 2 weeks) on Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart; it had entered the chart on November 30th, 1975 and spent 18 weeks on the Top 100... It reached #1 (for 4 weeks) on October 19th, 1975 on Billboard's Hot Dance Club Songs chart... And on March 27th, 1976 it peaked at #1 (for 1 week) on the Canadian RPM Top Singles chart... The two weeks it was at #2, the record at #1 for both those weeks was "50 Ways To Leave Your Lover" by Paul Simon... R.I.P. Ms. Summer, born LaDonna Adrian Gaines, (1948 - 2012).
Carmelo from Genova, ItalyIn 1976, Italian state broadcasting company, RAI, banned the song because of its strong sexual references yet you could hear some "very clean" snippets of it during the official chart programme on the radio. All those naive years ago! Nowadays you can hear rubbish everywhere and no one dares to ban anything!
Meocyber from Alma, CoToday, May 17, 2012 donna Smmer passed away from cancer./ She was a beautiful woman with a beautiful voice. She never seemed to have a negative message in her music. RIP.
Bill from Pensacola, FlThe woman sings Bad Girls, Hot Stuff, I feel Love, and more? I DOUBT she is embarrased.
Steve from Whittier, CaGreat song but frankly I thought the moaning was like her being beaten up!
This also had three different mixes! Different lengths as well.
Martin from Los Angeles, CaThe song where the lady just moans was called J'etaime (I love you in French). It depicts a scene of woman and man making love, hence the moaning. Towards the end of the song, the lady says O mon dieu (Oh my God) and gunshots are heard; denoting that the lovers were caught in unfaithful tryst.
Ekristheh from Halath, United StatesThe controversy around this song was incredible. I loved it; I thought she had one of the prettiest voices I had ever heard. I bought a "valentine" edition EP, with a deep pink cover and Summer in a sort of "southern belle" gown on the back, seated on a flower-covered swing. A few years earlier there had been a song on the charts which I thought much more "pornographic", and as far as I could tell, people had barely noticed. It consisted of a repeated instrumental guitar riff and a woman moaning orgasmically; no lyrics. I have no idea what it was called.
John from Nashville, TnAfter this song hit, critics were calling Summer "the one hit lady". She almost lived up to that title until "I Feel Love" hit the top 40 18 months later.
Mike from Santa Barbara, CaDonna Summer no longer performs this song. She is very embarrassed by it, even though it is her best remembered hit.
Leah from Brooklyn, NyI wonder how many 31 year old Americans around today were conceived to this tune...
Rob from Vancouver, CanadaJust close your eyes and your practically IN a porno.
Johanna from London, EnglandSampled by Beyonce in Naughty Girl
Pete Townshend never had a #1 UK hit with The Who or as a solo artist, but he did produce and play on a song that hit the top spot there: "Something In The Air" by Thunderclap Newman, a group he assembled.
