Donna Summer, the singer known to her fans as the Queen of Disco, died on Thursday at the age of 63. Summer, along with the producer Giorgio Moroder, was at the forefront of the disco movement in the Seventies, expanding and transforming dance music by mutating strains of R&B, funk and electronic music.

Though Summer and Moroder gave the world groundbreaking hits like "I Feel Love" and "Love to Love You Baby," they weren't alone in creating timeless disco music. Our question for you this week is: What is the best disco song of all time?

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
