I have liked Blondie’s music since I was four years old, which is the age where I received a Blondie cassette tape for my fourth birthday. I used to listen to that tape on a portable tape player, which was also given to me on my birthday. I remember taking that tape recorder/player with me everywhere from the ages of four to seven years. I used to also really enjoy that Blondie tape and had played it numerous times. Sorry, I can’t remember what the tape was called!! hehe and the tape had a photo on the cover with Debbie Harry’s hair in a bun. The songs I used to really like on the tape were “I’m a Gonna Love you to”, “Denis”, “I Know but I Don’t Know” and “Heart of Glass”. Also from the ages of 4-7 when I used to go to The Coast with my family and my parents would drive there, I’d listen to my Blondie and Abba cassette tapes. I also used to constantly listen to my Abba tape when I was a kid.

I re-started listening to Blondie’s music when I was in Year 10. In about 1993 I bought the Best of Blondie CD. Some of the songs on that CD are: “The Tide is High”, “In the Flesh”, “Sunday Girl”, “Picture This” and “Rip Her to Shreds”. What I also like about the CD is the cover as it shows Debbie Harry in a really nice white dress and there are great buildings in New York shown behind the band’s photo.

In about 202, I bought Blondie’s 1978 CD called Parallel lines. I bought it because it’s got some really great songs such as “Hanging on the Telephone”, “Sunday Girl”, “One Way or Another”, “11.59” and “I Know But I Don’t Know” etc.

I also like a few of Blondie’s videos, which I have seen on Youtube and on a late night music show I used to watch called Rage. These videos are “Rapture” and “Heart of Glass”.

In 1998 Blondie reformed as a group and released a new album called “No Exit”. In the same year I bought a CD single from that album which is called “Maria”.

In about 2004, I rented a DVD movie which starred Deborah Harry and was titled Life Without Me (2003). In the movie Deborah Harry acts as the mother of a lady who is dying of cancer. The reason why I hired this movie is because Scott Speedman was in it and I was/ am a fan of this very attractive American actor.

That’s it for today folks.
