Blondie Artist Bio and Lyrics
The 80's band Blondie formed in the summer of 1974 when guitarist Chris Stein met Deborah Harry. They were later joined by drummer Clem Burke, keyboard player Jimmy Destri and bass player Gary Valentine.
Blondie got their first record deal with Private Stock Records in the mid 70s, and released their debut album Blondie in 1976.
Blondie's first #1 hit, "Heart of Glass" was so disco, the label was reluctant to release it.
A defining moment for the band Blondie was their #1 hit, five and half minute 1980 track, "Rapture," which introduced the then underground hip-hop genre to a larger audience.
Blondie broke up in 1982 and Debbie Harry concentrated on her solo recording career and acted sporadically in film. In 1999, the band reformed, without Harrison and Infante, and in the U.K., achieved a number 1 single, "Maria", and a number 3 album, No Exit.
In 2006 the band Blondie was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame having been the influence for many future musicians.

The Tide is Verrry High
That was a rrreeally cool song from high school. It was before MTV (at least for most people) and wow! what a voice, it\\\'s not an alto, its like a low tenor. I wonder if Debbie was really a man?
