It’s one of my earliest memories.
This blonde creature, looking cool in ways five year old me couldn’t even begin to fathom let alone explain. I didn’t know who she was or what she did, but images like this were some of the first to get an impression on me, and was probably my first crush:
I thought that all women were supposed to look like this.
Many years later I delved into the music of Blondie, and became an instant fan. I can’t even remember NOT knowing Heart Of Glass, and to this day they are a force to be reckoned with. Even my hero Adalita was starstruck when she opened for Blondie on a joint tour with The Pretenders and bumped into Ms Harry while queuing for food.
The band, and the woman, are the coolest of music legends.
I STILL have a crush on Debbie, and the music is still among my favourite. Today I’ve chosen an instantly recognisable classic. Enjoy. x.
