    Listening to "I Feel Love" by Donna Summers the

    other day with my son in the car. I have it up very loudly, listening to the extended version and I roll up to a stop light. Immediately the windows go up by my son. I ask him what he is doing and I get, "Mom, this music is SO embarrassing!!" TOO funny.
