Taking a minor classic song from 1973 and updating the sounds around the original without changing the familiarity & feel of the 1973 version works. Changing baby queen to Steve McQueen sounds a little weird but is necessary because Blondie is a woman and Mr Essex is not. If you're old and/or know the original David Essex song you will be okay. If you are looking for a new take on an old song, move along nothing new here. If you are under 25 you've probably never heard of the original, download and enjoy a slow, meandering Blondie cover.

"Rock On" was originally recorded in 1973 by English singer/songwriter David Essex and wound up being his only Billboard Top 40-charting hit song. Why Blondie sat down to record a cover version and released it is beyond me, but it stays very close to the original 1973 recording. The instrumentation is icredibly minimalistic, and Debbie's vocals have aged well for a song like this. If Blondie hadn't gotten their start in the early punk and new wave scene of the mid '70s, you'd think this was simply an unreleased recording from their early days. And truth be told, the punk rock movement wasn't too far off from the glam rock movement. Just look at the New York Dolls!

She changed the words by taking put the part about Jimmy Dean... The lyric preservation by authentic reproduction suffers. Certain lyrics were NOT preserved and that ruined the whole concept of this remake of this classic song for me b/c THAT changed part was one of my favorite parts of the song, pause and all. Ugh !! =/

when I saw this on the free music list, I had to get it. Being a long time Blondie fan, I loved it and will explore the rest of the album, which I'm sure is the purpose of this "teaser." Go for it!

I gave it 3 stars, because 2 said I didn't like it, which was not true. I really like the idea of covering this David Essex song but I wish she had taken a few more chances. I just thought she had stayed "inside the lines" on this one. Nothing new.

Love this song, Great Version!!! Some of the other free Blondie songs were not quite as good as this one.

Like it. Blondie give this old song a new fresh sound. Deb Harry still sounds good on the vocals. I guess this beats trying to write new songs nowadays. Perhaps more bands should try it rather than put out crappy new songs that only make you long for great songs of the past like this.

Can't believe Blondie is still going strong. It's a nice cover and her voice is still almost as melodic as she was in the late 70s and early 80s.
