Unconditional Love (4:42)

Cover of The Donna Summer Anthology

From The Donna Summer Anthology and 16 other releases

“Unconditional Love” is the second single from the Donna Summer album She Works Hard for the Money, released in the autumn of 1983. Though uncredited, it also features vocals by British reggae act Musical Youth, who scored a Top 10 Pop and R&B hit in the US with Pass the Dutchie earlier in 1983.

The song was a commercial disappointment, peaking at #43 on the Billboard Hot 100, though it performed significantly better on the R&B chart (reaching the Top Ten). In the UK, it became Summer’s fourteenth Top 20 single, reaching a peak position of #14. The song was edited from the original album version for its release on the 7” single format. The 12” single featured an extended remix clocking in at 5:20.

The music video for “Unconditional Love” was very popular on MTV. In the video, Summer plays a school teacher, and the reggae group Musical Youth are members of the class. After the class is over, Summer removes her heavy fur coat, revealing a tight blue glittery nightclub singer outfit, and goes outside, singing with all the students in the school.
