I was never a big fan of Blondie back in the 80's. However, the group came back together many years later to make the song 'Maria', which they released in February of 1999. There is something special, mysterious and moving about this particular song. I believe Debbie Harry was around 53 years old when they got back together to make 'Maria'.

A young friend of mine was listening to this song, and I could not believe it was Blondie until I looked it up for myself. Strong hook with nice lyrics, and showcases Debbie Harry's voice. If I like it, and a woman 30 years my junior likes it, that should tell you all you need to know. It's not like the 80's new wave Blondie, but it's music that I keep in my MP3 player all the time.
Debbie Harry and Blondie were big in the late-70s and early-80s, but when they announced that they were making a comeback, who gave it much credit? Well, this song is excellent, showing that Debbie Harry still has got it! It's really bouncy and fun and always worth listening to.
