Songs That Changed Music: Blondie – Heart Of Glass

In 1979 Blondie, the New York band fronted by Debbie Harry, had their first US hit with “Heart of Glass”,a propulsive, glitter-smothered track about a love affair gone wrong, and a shoo-in for radio playlists. It was a bold new sound for the new-wavers whose first album had combined Sixties pop melodies with choppy guitars and a snarly attitude. Blondie played regularly at the punk mecca CBGB, and hung around with Television, The Ramones and the New York Dolls. With “Heart of Glass” they had gone full disco, and not everyone was happy about it. from Produce Like A Pro
