This is the classic rock song that you remember. But Blondie reinvents it so that it stands alone as a contempory song.
Their instrumentation differs: driving guitar, bass, driving keyboards, drums as well as wind and brass. And reaching out to you the seductive voice of Deborah Harry. She wraps her voice around the lyrics in her own unique way. This is not a typical cover where they try to replicate the original. Blondie reinvents the song to own it and make it theirs. The sound is complex but at the same time simple and without a producer's fade to black but an abrupt stop with Debbie's final Rock On.
The original drew you in with a unique seductive song but with a male vocalist that sounds dated now. This is not a replication but a reinterpretation with Debbie's seductive voice giving it a quality the original lacked.
It is nostalgic and new at the same time: like Blondie itself. Deborah Harry Rocks On.

This was a big hit for David Essex in 1973. At least I think that was his name. He was one of those one hit wonders. I was very young but remember it well. It was on the the top 40 radio all the time. It used synths, and that was new and unusual and to me it sounded great. And now Blondie, one of my favorites from the late 70's, covers it. And it's a great cover! A bit more rocking and less electronic than the original. And the best part. . .it's free. How can you say no?

It feels funny going through Amazon sings, and always wanting to purchase stuff over 20 years old.
My guess is, this trend is going to continue. ;-)

This is just average Blondie...not her best.

Intro was pretty great but I don't really like the song. I just got it because it was free. I am starting to find that I don't like any of the music I get for free. Don't buy songs that are free.

I have no idea where the song is. Must be out there in cyerspace somewhere.Why is downloading an mp3 so complicated? It used to be simple.

It was free, but still not worth it. A good example of ruining a great song. Simply painful to the ears.

Anything Debbie Harry does is cool. Well, except for her appearance on that fashion competition program some months ago. This effort is no different. All the work people like Debbie Harry (and Chrissie Hynde, Pat Benatar, Joan Jett, and a few others) did and continue to do have made it possible for so much more music to be made by people who otherwise might have opted to not pursue that creative outlet. Debbie Harry had everything all tied up into one gorgeous rock and roll package. I don't think she can do anyting wrong!
