Debbie Harry and Blondie, Top 10, Top 10 Tuesday

Blondie was founded by Singer Debbie Harry and Guitarist Chris Stein. The Band is considered a pioneer in the early American New Wave and Punk Scenes of the mid-to-late 1970’s. The Band’s 1st 2 Albums contained strong elements of both New Wave and Punk, and although successful in the UK and Australia, Blondie was regarded as an Underground Band in the US until the Release of the Album, Parallel Lines, in 1978.

The Band achieved several Hit Singles, including “Call Me”, “Rapture”, and “Heart of Glass”, and became noted for their Eclectic Mix of Musical Styles incorporating elements of Disco, Pop, Reggae, and early Rap Music.

Blondie broke-up after the Release of its 6th Studio Album, The Hunter, in 1982. Debbie Harry continued to pursue a Solo Career with varied results after taking a few years off to care for partner Chris Stein, who was diagnosed with pemphigus, a rare autoimmune disease of the skin.

The Band re-formed in 1997, achieving a renewed success and a # 1 Single in the UK with “Maria”, in 1999, exactly 20 years after their 1st UK # 1 Single, “Heart of Glass”.

Blondie was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, in 2006.

The Band has sold 40 Million Records Worldwide, and is still active. Their 11th Studio Album, Pollinator, was released earlier this year.

My 1st 45″ was a Blondie Single, “Call Me”. I went back to the local Record Store a week later, babysitting money in hand, and bought 2 more Songs. That started my Love of Debbie Harry and Blondie, one that has never left me.

In the Late 80’s/Early 90’s I frequented Underground Hollywood Clubs that Spun Blondie’s Music heavily, especially Club 1970 and Hot Lave. And, my first car, had at least 2 Blondie Cassettes in rotation for Car-Concert Play, at all times.

Choosing just 10 Songs was not an easy thing to do as there are so many Best Blondie Songs, but with multiple Plays and careful consideration, we present you with Lyriquediscorde’s Top 10.

4. “Heart of Glass”
from the Album, Parallel Lines (1978)

“Once I had a love,

Mucho mistrust,
love’s gone behind.”

5. “Dreaming”
from the Album, Eat to the Beat (1979)

“I don’t want to live on charity.
Pleasure’s real,

Reel to reel is living rarity,
people stop and stare at me,
we just walk on by.
We just keep on dreaming.”
