BLONDIE'S COMPLETE COLLECTION,
This review is from: Greatest Hits (Audio CD)
Blondie's Greatest hit's is just about the best that any artist can offer. From Punk to Funk to Techno Rock to Pop, Blondie has put it all here for you, no less than a dozen plus hits. Blondie were the #1 Selling band on the planet from 1978-1981, giving us ground breaking rock, including "Heart of Glass, Rapture and Atomic". They were also the first artist to release a Video Album for their 1979 album "Eat to the Beat". Blondie also gave Hip Hop the break it needed, when "Rapture" was the first ever #1 Rap song, as was "The Tide is High" the first #1 Reggae song that millions around the world ever heard.
Quick break down on several stand out tracks:
Dreaming: Probally Blondie's best written song, an absolutely wonderful rock classic.
Call Me: One of the biggest songs ever charted, great Techno Rock, with delicious lyrics. The song that defined the 1980's.
One way or another: The great punk stalker track, hard driving beat.
Heart of Glass: The Techno Rock Disco song that sold millions of copies and made Blondie the Super Group they are still today.
Rapture: Ground Breaking, lyrics are great fun and the music score is just awesome, a really super cool song.
Atomic: The most sensual song ever to chart, just hypnotizing lyrics. Deborah Harry is the God of Rock.
Denis: Pure Bilingual magic, Deborah Harry is just fantastic!
Sunday Girl: Sweet, just like Ice Cream.
Maria: The #1 comeback Smash. It had New Wave 1979 written all over it, but surprise it was 1999. Incredible comeback song.
