Hall of Fame Essay

2006

Barbara O’Dair

A Blondie classic is hard to characterize.

The group has produced both hits and experiments in multiple musical genres to dizzying and dazzling effect - raw punk gems; goofy homages to girl groups, comics, and B films; hard, fast rock; and gorgeous melanges of disco, rap and techno pop.

“Hanging on the Telephone,” “One Way or Another,” “Heart of Glass,” “Call Me,” “Rapture” — the songs that charted in the U.S. or U.K. were staggeringly different from one other.
