The last 2 days I've been youtubing lots of Blondie songs again - the last time was when we did the Blondie top ten. Her (their) music was a significant part of my childhood "soundtrack" eventhough I've never bought any Blondie albums or singles myself. Oh wait, I have these: Anyway, I stumbled upon the "Pollinator" album and I was amazed to hear how fresh she sounds, although the album itself is very back-2-the-old-skool. Apparently, this song was co-written by American composer Lucian Piane who also wrote/produced some of the RuPaul albums. Incidentally, I have the single "Cover Girl (Put The Bass In Your Walk)". But it's very different. "Pollinator" also has a coverversion of Adam-The Unkindness-Johnston's "Fragments", it's really very good. I think there's something very comfortable about Debbie Harry's voice but don't take that comment as "diminishing". Actually I'd rate her as one of the best female vocalists - but what does a rating mean anyway. The English band Saint Etienne reminds me of Blondie sometimes, or maybe it's vice versa. And I still can't comprehend that she's not a European artist. Is it because she always seems so....close?
