Thank God Its Friday

I was just a wee child of 12 when the movie, "Thank God It's Friday" came out, but I remember it like it was yesterday. A comedic homage to the age of Disco, it's message was hopeful and at times inspiring.

Since today is the "last dance" of the week and of the summer like weather, I previewed this video of the great disco queen, Donna Summer singing her monster hit, "Last Dance" from the movie and I will admit to getting a few goosebumps.

Enjoy the "last dance" of the week with one of the disco era's greats and remember a kinder, simpler time.

Have a great weekend bloggers!

Thank God it’s Friday indeed. Did I mention how much I miss the great food and casual atmosphere of TGIF? That was a great video/great song, and it brought out a goosey on me too. I hope you have an amazing weekend!

I remember the duet with her and Barbara Streisand. All the hype churned up with the meeting of the two huge Divas, and they talked about shoes the whole time.

I loved that song.. I don't remember the movie, though. I also liked "on the radio". Actually, I liked all her stuff. Donna was the queen back in the day, for sure.

My roommates and I are having an '80s party this weekend. I can't deal with the '70s right now. :)

Gotta loooooove some Donna Summer! Too bad there's not a Donna Autumn, Donna Winter and Donna Spring.

But then there's Ma-donna...the mutha of all seasons.

Not ashamed to say I got down and funky when listening to that song.

Not ashamed at all! Thanks for the impromptu workout music ;)

Last Dance makes me wish I was at Studio 54.

Hi Candy,
For some reason your blog has gotten stuck for me 2 or 3 times. I have you on my favorites bar and when I go to you it stays on the same post. I’ve tried going in through google to the same result. I’ve tried cleaning out my cookies but still…..Then a couple days later, I’ll see that I missed a bunch of your posts. One time it happened for over a week. I don’t know if it is something that ‘Blogger’ can fix or not. I don’t know it it’s just me or not. Do you ever notice a sharp decline in comments? Anyway I wanted to let you know and was wondering if it was happening again? Sorry to bother you with this, if you just haven’t posted since Friday.
Scott
