After being signed to Frankie Valli's Private Stock label, Blondie was the victim of a happy accident. To promote the single "X-Offender" in 1977, they made two music videos, one of that song and one of "In The Flesh". When the Australian music program Countdown mistakenly aired "in The Flesh", it became a hit and a couple of other songs off of "Plastic Letters" like "Rip Her To Shreds" followed suit. Debbie and Chris had this "Disco Song" they had been toying with, but never completed. A demo version of "Heart Of Glass" that sounded a bit like a James Bond theme was subsequently given a new arrangement by producer Mike Chapman that made the song radio and club friendly. Debbie says she was tired of hearing about heartbreak and staying with a relationship and being a victim rather than walking away and she wrote new lyrics and changed the line "thing of the past" into "Heart Of Glass". The rest is disco history, Blondie had a monster worldwide hit and went on to a stellar career until they ran out of gas on their sixth LP 1981's "The Hunter", which sounded more like something you would hear in a cocktail bar. Not bad, but far from past glories. A long breakup ensued while Debbie took care of Chris Stein, recorded periodically. She did a demo version of a song that ended up with EG Daily's vocals in 1985, "Mind Over Matter" that can be found bootlegged. In 1990 Debbie and Chris, along with original bandmate Clem Burke and set about doing small gigs. The band reformed in 1997 (without Gary Valentine), released "No Exit", and got a #1 UK Pop Hit. They are still touring and recording today, their latest release will be out in January 2014 "Ghosts Of The Download". The first single " A Rose By Any Name" was released in June, 2013. I used elements of Blondie - Heart Of Glass Hot Tracks Remix, since the breakdowns the DJ did were so smokin hot!
