Her track 'I Feel Love' was a classic and very risque and groundbreaking for its time

I'm not a huge disco fan but in that genre of music she was one of the best - sadly like many others mentioned on here recently she passed away far too young Sad

I had no idea she was so ill. Yes her voice was fantastic, and in 1977 with I Feel Love she and her record producers changed disco, with the totally synthised backing which must have influenced techno genre music - it's one of those 'timeless' pieces of music!

Very sad. I was no disco lover but did like her music. Her double album Once Upon A Time was excellent.
This may be sacrilege but I also liked her version of MacArthur Park.

I liked her Stock/Aitken/Waterman stuff, although she kind of ruined that comeback with her "all gays are going to Hell" statements.

I'm devastated. I thought she was singing "I feel rough". I could relate to that some mornings.
