Donna Summer - Dim All The Lights on On The Radio: Greatest Hits Volumes I & II (1979)

Donna Summer - Dim All The Lights on On The Radio: Greatest Hits Volumes I & II
"Dim All the Lights" is a song by American recording artist Donna Summer that bowed at #70 on 25 August 1979 and peaked at #2 on 10–17 November 1979 on the Billboard Hot 100. It was blocked from becoming the third number one hit from the album by "Heartache Tonight" by the Eagles the first week and "Still" by Commodores the next week. Taken from her Bad Girls album and produced by her longtime collaborator Giorgio Moroder with Pete Bellotte, the track combines Summer's trademark disco beats with a more soulful pop sound. This was the third Hot 100 top two single from the album and her sixth consecutive Hot 100 top five single.

Summer had released "Hot Stuff" and "Bad Girls" and, later, the "No More Tears (Enough Is Enough)" duet with Barbra Streisand, all of which reached position 1. "Dim All the Lights" was another massive hit for her, reaching number two on the US Billboard Hot 100 singles chart and number 29 on the UK Singles Chart. Like "Hot Stuff" and "Bad Girls" before, "Dim All The Lights" and "No More Tears" were simultaneously in the top three, but missed having the top two positions, on the Hot 100.
