"Carry On" is a song written by Giorgio Moroder and Marietta Waters and recorded by Donna Summer. The song was first released on Moroder's 1992 album Forever Dancing. The following year, the song closed Summer's two-disc set The Donna Summer Anthology.

During the 1970s Moroder had co-written and co-produced a large number of Summer's disco hits, and this song marked the first time the two had worked together in more than a decade. The recording features background vocals by Summer's children, Brooklyn and Amanda Grace Sudano, along with co-writers Waters and Moroder, and Larry Lee.

"Carry On" was released as a single in Germany in 1992 and some years later was remixed and became an international hit, reaching #25 on the U.S. Dance charts in 1997 and #65 on the UK Pop charts in 1998. That same year it won the first Grammy award for Best Dance Recording.
