"No More Tears (Enough Is Enough)," Barbra Streisand & Donna Summer Lenght:11:40
In 1979 both Barbra Streisand and Donna Summer were considered superstars in two different music genres. Barbra was considered a superstar in the field of Easy Listening music, while Donna was considered the supreme superstar in the field of Disco music. But in 1979, to expand her status Barbra recorded a Disco album, "Wet" on the Columbia music label (her long standing label). Donna also was cutting her followup album to the Grammy award winning "Bad Girls" ("On The Radio") on Casablanca records (her long standing label). There was a thought of perhaps striking the same gold as Barbra had the previous year of 1978 with the song, "You Don't Bring Me Flowers" which put Barbra into a duet with Neil Diamond and sent that song to #1 on the charts, by perhaps bringing both Barbra and Donna together to record a Disco duet . Born out of that was the #1 song and one of the most memorable Disco records of all time, "No More Tears (Enough Is Enough)". Several different length versions were recorded with a 11:40 version appearing on Barbra's "Wet" album (Donna would put that version on later greatest hits album). And although there was a single edit version of the song, the more memorable version the one that appeared on the "Wet" album and also put on 12" dance disc was the one that got much more airplay (including on radio). The song went to #1 for two weeks in November 1979.
