Best Bit-At 0.59.A lot of the Debbie Harry fan base were not pleased at the bands change in musical style,but I bet they left her posters on their walls.
In 1978 successful music producer Mike Chapman(see also best songs 860, 773 and 686) was drafted in to produce what would become Blondie’s third studio Album,’Parallel Lines’.He wanted to know if there were any demo’s from the past that had not been used. Debbie Harry and Chris Stein played him a song they had written back in 1974 called ‘Once I Had A Love,’the song had a slower funky sound with a disco beat,for this reason the band referred to it as ‘The Disco Song.’Chapman convinced them to record the song in a disco style and Heart Of Glass was born,projecting the band Blondie in to the mainstream.
Up until this point Blondie had been a rock and new wave outfit respected among their peers.Many of their early fan base chose to disown them citing that they had sold out .
‘In between what I find is pleasing and I’m feeling fine,love is so confusing there’s no peace of mind.’
