40 Year Itch : 23 Orgasms

Donna Summer : Love to Love You Baby

   Inspired by the scandalous Jane Birkin and Serge Gainsbourg single " Je T'Aime ( Moi Non Plus)", which had returned to the charts, Summer and producers Georgio Moroder and Pete Bellotte recorded their own racy song. Producers convinced Summer to lie on the studio floor in the dark and moan throughout most of the single and its follow-up, a sixteen minute version that would take up an entire side of the Love To Love You Baby album. The BBC counted up 23 simulated orgasms. Time Magazine only came up with 22. Summer et al began counting up the money as the single hit Top 10 in the US, UK, Australia and half a dozen other countries. Summer became the world's most famous disco queen with multiple hits and Grammys.
