The song starts with subdued guitars and other stringed instrumentals. Slowly it gives way to stronger rock. But Debbie's melancholy lyrics and mournful delivery of the lyrics soon let you know that this is not another love song, but a love lost with a touch of regret and remorse. But, if you are a true Blondie fan, you know that Debbie rarely writes love songs but many lost love songs. The music builds behind her voice and abruptly ends with her final lyric.
I can not think of a song to compare it to: it is not a heavily produced song that slowly fades. Debbie sings a mournful song of lost love and the music stops. Between the subtlty of the instrumentation and the resigned tone to Debbie's voice it is a great tune worthy of classic Blondie and beyond.

One of the greatest bands from the seventies and eighties. We are lucky they are still touring and making new music. Dead Air is a Beautiful ballad from the band. I prefer more upbeat Blondie, but everyone will love this song with the still Lovely, and talented vocals of DEBBIE HARRY.

blondie is absolutely great..just glad they went back to their roots..Apart from the song "Maria",which was a great example of the Blondie 'sound' ,the No Exit cd was horrible.my dog shot himself as I played the cd.Dead Air is very good however.

Having just seen Blondie on their 2012 Blondie/Devo mini-tour in September, where they rocked the venue all the way up to the last row, with people dancing wildly everywhere, I found myself listening to Debbie and the boys more than ever to keep the good vibe going as long as I could after the show. While I love the Blondie catalog of music, happily some of my favorite songs are newer ones, too: "What I Heard" rocks (check out the "Live at Abbey Road" version of the song on YouTube to see Debbie, Clem, Chris and the newer members of the group kicking some serious butt live: [...]), and their version of Ellie Goulding's hit "Lights" is better than Ellie's in my opinion, because Debbie's haunting voice fits the lyrics better (I like Ellie's version, too--don't get me wrong), plus it was memorable in concert because they segued from "Lights" to their old hit "Atomic" in an exhilarating way. My point is they're still making new music that I love, and these 3 new songs they released in October (for free on Amazon, no less) are good examples of that--all 3 are excellent representations of how strong they still are musically, and how much they continue to love to perform and create. Don't miss them live if you get the chance--their shows are tight, fun, and you'll be sweating from dancing by the time the encore rolls around (on this tour their encores included a cover of Frankie Goes to Hollywood's "Relax" that kicked butt, too!)

Though quieter and softer than the music that made Blondie famous, Debbie Harry sounds great. The song itself -- a leftover from "Panic of Girls" released for free download -- was good enough to make me curious to hear the songs that made the cut for the album itself.

I love Blondie and it was a treat to get a few of her songs offered for free. Her voice is incredible and she has such a talent. This music is captivating and beautiful and surreal. I will never tire of Blondie. It lifts you up and energizes you while at the same time, relaxes you with its surreal feel and beauty.

Received a free offer from Amazon (based on purchases) for music downloads. I tried to download this item but the download never worked. I got a few screwy errors but never did get the music file. I wrote to Amazon regarding it and never did receive a reply. Am sure the product itself is great, I just did not get it.

I remember Blondie from the early to mid 1970's and this brings back memories of the mood of those days - since I was a wee youngin' back then I didn't full pick up on the zeitgeist but I knew it was a bit beyond me - anyway that's what this song brings to mind.
