Donna Summer’s “Romeo”


I was flipping through radio stations the other day when Donna Summer’s “Romeo” came blaring out from some “oldies” station. If you had asked me just moments before, “what does Donna Summer’s ‘Romeo’ sound like?” I would have shrugged my shoulders. But when it came on, I knew this song. I knew it because it was on the Flashdance soundtrack and I had two older sisters. So now thanks to them “Romeo” not occupies the place in my brain that should be helping me speak French or remember the higher Roman Numerals.

Damn you and your ability to sing anything and make it sound good Donna Summer!
