"I was at a Grammys party and I went to the ladies room and on my way in I saw this little old lady sitting at the end of the bar. And she was asleep. She was the bathroom attendant. And at that same moment, a group of ladies walked into the room and started spraying their hair and doing all these things. And my first thought was 'God, she works hard for her money, that lady.' And then I thought, 'man, that's a song. So I went and grabbed my manager and we went back into the bathroom and started writing the song on a piece of toilet paper.'' - Donna Summer
''The song became an anthem for many working-class people, and the single shot up the charts. Because no one had anticipated its success, it threw everyone at both labels into a king-sized tizzy! Polygram was upset because I was back on top and they had let me out of my contract.'' - Donna Summer
