It was the year in which always-decadent disco entered its truly decadent phase. Donna Summer's rich offerings to the inferno in 1979 were Bad Girls and Hot Stuff, and from the likes of Anita Ward, Chic, and Rod Stewart came Ring My Bell, Le Freak, and Da Ya Think I'm Sexy? Yes, you could say that sex was a popular theme in the popstrological firmament during the gloriously debauched year of your birth, just as sex is a popular theme for all members of the Donna Summer generation. Like all oversaturated pop-cultural phenomena, disco was probably destined to buckle under its own weight or to collapse in the face of a challenger like New Wave. But disco's collapse certainly wasn't delayed by the formation in 1979 of the Power Couple Barbra Streisand & Donna Summer. It may have seemed like a good idea at the time (although to whom is not quite clear), but in retrospect we can clearly see that something about that pairing brought an end to the popstrological career of disco's glorious queen.
