"Sunset People" is a song by Donna Summer taken from her very successful album Bad Girls. The album, released on Casablanca Records, had already produced several chart-topping singles for the disco star, but Summer had resigned from the label and taken a lawsuit against them.[citation needed] She had since signed to Geffen Records and was getting ready to release her first album with them (which had moved away from the disco sound). Casablanca continued to release Summer's material as singles in competition, but to no avail.

The song was covered by E.G. Daily in 1985 for her debut album Wild Child.
