Donna Summer: She Works Hard For The Money/Diana Ross: Ross

Gavin Martin, New Musical Express, 16 July 1983

DONNA SUMMER has adopted a succession of irresistible role models – the sex Goddess of Moroder's sensual motorik disco, the modern day Cinderella of 'Once Upon A Time', the sassy supervamp of 'Bad Girls' – and my heart turned to putty once more when I saw the cover of her LP. There she is – lovely Donna, sweet, glowing magnificent Donna – an angel in white, a soda pop waitress who looks like she's about to break Dion Di Mucci's wayward heart.
