EDITORS’ NOTES

Between 1976 and 1980, Blondie released a peerless string of singles that reshaped the pop mainstream with underground attitude. Debbie Harry’s sneering taunts on “Rip Her to Shreds” betray the group's punk past, but the starry-eyed “Dreaming” summoned the dawn of New Wave, while the synth-powered knockout “Heart of Glass” and the rap-infused funk of “Rapture” saw them bravely saunter into the discotheque. And their joyous cover of reggae standard “The Tide Is High” reinforced just how far Blondie had ventured from their CBGB roots.

As Always, great to listen to, like the Vinyl I still have! An awesome band that everyone in this part of the world got to hear and like me, probably recall the mixes at the dance clubs and straight tracks at the rock clubs playing it just the same. Peace!

So many classics omitted

Blondie has so many great songs that it's a shame these are known as "the classics."
