Donna Summer: I Do Believe (I Fell In Love)

During my years in Top 40 radio from 1978 to 1987, I had an opportunity to play quite a few of Donna Summers’ records. In fact, one of the bands in which I was a member in the early 80s performed her hit “She Works Hard for the Money.” Yesterday, the Queen of Disco succumbed to her battle with cancer. She was 63.

In her honor, our Friday Flipside is her recording “I Do Believe (I Fell in Love).” It was the “B” side to her 1983 hit “She Works Hard for the Money.” The “A” side peaked at #3. “I Do Believe (I Fell in Love)” is a ballad that moves to an uptempo number. It showcases the versatility of Summer’s voice. Rest in Peace Donna.
