The world lost another award-winning pop star. This time, it was the Queen of Disco. Donna Summer, best known for dance floor singles like "Hot Stuff," "Last Dance," and "She Works Hard for the Money," passed away at the age of 63 on Thursday morning.

Summer first came to prominence in 1975 with the first-ever extended for disco track, "Love to Love You Baby." Between 1976 and 1979, she released seven more albums, containing several iconic disco tracks, like "I Feel Love" and "MacArthur Park."

She also received an Academy Award for her 1978 song "Last Dance," off the soundtrack of "Thank God It's Friday." Summer went on to release more than 15 studio albums, winning her five Grammys and spawning countless chart-topping singles. What's your favorite song from Donna Summer?

    "Hot Stuff"
    I wasn't a big disco fan but she did it better than most. "Hot Stuff" is a hard rockin' disco song.

    I was born in the 70's so I grew up listening to a lot of the disco and Donna Summer had the music to let your hair down with and groove. My mom used to sing to the song that I chose and god rest her soul as well. Mom this song is for you (She works hard for the money ). RIP Donna Summer you will be missed deeply.

    "MacArthur Park"
    The whole production of this song was amazing. My husband and I used Hot Stuff as our first dance at our civil union. Some of her other great songs are On My Honor, You're So Beautiful, Heaven Knows, I Remember Yesterday, Once Upon a Time, Voices Cryin' Out, The Queen is Back, Crayons, Love is Just a Breath Away.

    Class act. The Crap that sings today. Could never hold a candle to Donna.
    Just to make things clear. When I talk Crap (Lady Goo, Nicki Minaj and the such).

    Goos at what she did. Too bad she had to go.

    "On the Radio"
    Last Dance literally became the last dance song since it was always played to let you know it was time to go home after a party or a night at the club. On the Radio or Bad Girls (toot toot beep beep) are the songs I find myself singing to myself when no-one else is around!
    RIP Miss Summer

    Donna had one of those true rich black voices that was admired by many eroupean americans, such as myself, as well as well as many african americans, asian americans,
    hispanics, and native americans. Another great american icon has crossed the river Jorden this year.
