Blondie

Any Blondie fans round here?

I only own the Greatest Hits album and Parallel Lines which I totally dig.. can anyone recommend which album I should buy next, or just show some appreciation for the beautiful Debbie Harry and her band?

I only have their Greatest Hits.
It is an excellent compilation though!
And Fade Away And Radiate is just gorgeous!

Another one here who only owns the Greatest Hits.

When I was in kindergarten, my uncle lived with us (he was in high school). I used to listen to his Blondie 8-tracks all the time. It was the beginning of my passion for good rock music.

Debbie Harry - more than just a blonde, she's a goddess

Read thread and had to listen to Call Me:
Colour me your colour, darling
I know who you are
Come up off your colour chart
I know where you're coming from.

Legendary song from a band who are a little under appreciated I think, although I do have to plead to guilty to only owning their greatest hits.

One thing that has always bothered me though is how does one 'Walk On Imported Air'? I could be being very stupid but I have absolutely no idea what this line means.

I think its suggesting she's really important like I think of people like Mariah Carey who will only have a dressing room with imported French lilies or what have you. I think they are just taking that idea to the extreme. Even the air she walks on is imported.. I dunno this is just my interpretation

Call Me is fabulous, one of my favourites. I also love Sunday Girl and Union City Blue. Of the two albums I have I don't think I'd skip one song, except maybe the Tide is High cos of how Atomic Kitten ruined it!

Luckily it isn't a Blondie original then. (I think The Paragons first recorded it)
That's a thing I noticed lately, when I heard quite a few songs I thought were Blondie originals, but they turned out to be covers. Yes, I knew of Denis and since a couple of years of The Tide Is High too. But recently I heard that I'm Gonna Love You Too also isn't a Blondie original.
Still, their own songs are quite brilliant too.

I hate it when that happens

Worst thing is when you hear someone else doing a song you think is a cover then it turns out they are the original artist!

That's probably right, I always wondered if it was a euphemism I hadn't heard of!
