In complete contrast to the depressing stuff from Jarvis & Co the other day*, let's relax a wee bit today with some disposable fluff that got to #1 in May 1979:-
mp3 : Blondie - Sunday Girl
mp3 : Blondie - Sunday Girl (French Version)
mp3 : Blondie - I Know But I Don't Know
This was the band's second successive #1 in the UK, coming just a few months after Heart Of Glass. They didn't get the hat-trick however, as the next release, Dreaming stalled at #2 some 17 months later.
But Blondie would go on to enjoy another three #1 hits in 1980, making them, without question, the most commercially successful band of the era.
And with the unexpected success of Maria, they would also go on to have a sixth song reach #1 in 1999. But they are running out of time now if they want to try and have a fourth successive decade with a song that hits the top.....there's on;y a matter of weeks left now.
NB : * before the problems with Filden, the posting on This Is Hardcore was scheduled to appear the day before Sunday Girl......
