Donna Summer, Singer of Feminist Anthems, Dead at 63


It's been a bad month for music lovers. The latest sad news is that disco queen Donna Summer has died at 63. TMZ reports that the singer died of lung cancer.

Let's take a minute to remember her by listening to her feminist anthem "She Works Hard for the Money," which is based on Summer's encounter with a bathroom attendant who was asleep on the job; the attendant told Summer she was tired from working multiple jobs to make ends meet (link via @kthalps).
