“Queen For A Day” by Donna Summer – Disco Video Mix by Glenn Rivera
Donna Summer weaves a disco operetta of “Cinderella” in the double LP “Once Upon A Time” from 1977 – it still one of the fondest productions of the era. “Queen For A Day” is from the album and is one of Giorgio Moroder’s masterpiece combinations of his roaring and stately synthesizer and keyboard arrangements along with Bob Esty’s arrangements. It is a masterpiece all of its own.
I have taken the track and placed it along with the Rodgers and Hammerstein’s “Cinderella” production from 1957 starring Ginger Rodgers, Celeste Holm, Stuart Damon and Lesley Ann Warren as our princes, soon to be queen.
It is a magical and lyrical fantasy that evokes the entire mystic and joy that disco music brings.
The production was directed by Charles S. Dubin
