Blondie, “Hanging On the Telephone”

Another absolutely perfect song from that glorious era. I was a 22 year old university student at the time. A very special time, one of the best times of my life! This is another song that defined the era. Blondie, “Hanging on the Telephone,” from Parallel Lines, 1979. They just don’t make music like this anymore. What happened? The original was written by the Nerves. Maybe I’ll put it on sometime. This is a case where the cover is better than the original.

Debbie Harry was always utterly gorgeous. She still was in 2014 at least. A beautiful older woman. And she was a punk! And she’s still a punk! Punk til death! Rock til you drop!

  1. All these others tried to copy her. Anybody that would dare compare Madonna to her should be horse whipped. It’s Debbie, Joni Mitchell, Chrissie Hynde; not many others.

      1. You know it bro! Chrissie was there in England at the start of punk in the early to mid 70’s, even though she was from Cleveland. Sid Vicious, Johnny Rotten, Steve Cook, Glen Matlock were some of her best friends. So many tried to copy Debbie Harry though.
