Monday's Long Song

Stunning, sensational and sexy as fuck. Two years before Donna Summer made the greatest disco song of all-time, she made this - the second best disco song of all-time. She co-wrote the song with Giorgio Moroder and the pair recorded a version that was sent to Casablanca Records president Neil Bogart. Bogart played the song at one of his extravagant industry parties, where it was so popular with the crowd, they insisted that it be played over and over each time it ended. Bogart requested that Moroder produce a longer version for discothèques. This 17-minute version was the result and became the definitive one.

If this is indeed the party season, what better way is there to get it started?


  1. Marvellous, as of course is the other song you allude to. I've also got a lot of love for the over the top Summer/Streisand duet 'No More Tears (Enough is Enough)'.

  2. A fab song as is the one which followed in '77, but I've always been a big fan of "State of Independence" and "Bad Girls" is pretty damn groovy too.
