Heart Of Glass – Song Of The Day

BlondieReleased in 1979 after appearing on Blondie‘s album Parallel Lines one year prior, “Heart Of Glass” topped the charts but unnerved the band’s New Wave rock fans as the use of a more disco sound looked like it meant the band was becoming over-commercialised. Maybe had the original lyrics “pain in the ass” been kept in instead of “heart of glass” that could have appeased those worried listeners. As it stands, it’s one of Blondie’s most instantly recognisable hits and it’s damn good, disco or no disco.
