70's oldies blogging

Band is named Blondie, song is "Heart of Glass". Sadly I remember when this was new and I was a kid crushing on Deborah Harry (but she was way too old even then - only a year younger than my mother, talk about a MILF!). This particularly rendition is a particularly soul-less version, shortly before they broke up I suspect. The album version was quite sexy in a clean-cut sort of way and I loved her voice, probably why I keep putting so many female singers here, it's that deranged 70's upbringing ;).

  1. I remember when this song came out, too -- and I was only 7 or 8. But I wouldn't call this performance soulless. To me, the band in general seems weary, as if they're just doing their best to get through one last round of obligations without incurring any extra trouble. And I don't blame 'em -- in the short time they were active, they were pretty damn successful...

  2. Always loved the "Parallel Lines" album, and I'm pretty sure every guy had a crush on her back then.

  3. What wok3 said.

    Debbie Harry is even older than I am - by one year, five months, and one week. God-damn she was hot.

  4. I LOVE Blondie! Saw them live last year and they were amazing!
