1980 Donna Summer – Cold Love (US:#33 & UK:#44)

Cold Love is a song by American singer Donna Summer, released as the second single from her album The Wanderer. The song was written by Harold Faltermeyer, Keith Forsey and Pete Bellotte and produced by Bellotte and Giorgio Moroder. It peaked at No. 33 in the Billboard Hot 100, and No. 41 in Cash Box. Summer earned a Grammy nomination for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance.

Vocally, this song contrasts with the just previous “The Wanderer” single release – it is very reminiscent of her 1979 disco hit “Hot Stuff” – power belt and hard rock approach. This style was currently in vogue in the early 1980s and used by female vocalists in groups such as Heart and in Pat Benatar’s “Hit Me with Your Best Shot”.
