Deborah Harry then and now…even Andy Warhol photographed her during her early career.
Wow, talk about pulling out the time capsule this morning. The New York Times has a story about one of my favorite bands from the late 70’s and early 80’s. Deborah Harry, front woman for the punk-pop band Blondie is still edgy and making music 30 years later.
Harry, who is 62 now, has released her first solo album in 14 years entitled “Necessary Evil.” Still looking good, Harry says that her album doesn’t reflect her single status (she was romantically involved with fellow bandmate Chris Stein for many years). Her album is “Like most pop songs it’s about relationships, it’s about sex,” she said. “I’m in love with love — sometimes.”

Now, reaching back into the video vault, here are a couple songs you will surely know. And for you younger kids, “Rapture” was the first rap song not just by a woman, but by anyone to make it to #1… It’s ok if her lyrics don’t make any sense. She was great to watch! ;-)
“Heart of Glass” 1978
