BLONDIE - Heart Of Glass 7'' 1978

Today a classic and I'm sure all you Fotzkos know this awesome band. This goodie is featured on the band's third studio album Parallel Lines from 1978 and at the time, Blondie was one of the bands at the forefront of New York's growing new wave music scene and were accused of "selling out" for releasing a disco song. According to Harry, "Heart Of Glass" made the band pariahs in the eyes of many of their fellow musicians in the New York music scene. The band was accused of pandering to the mainstream that many Punk/New Wave bands at the time were actively rebelling against. She also said, "People got nervous and angry about us bringing different influences into rock." Despite the controversy, the song was a huge hit and helped propel Blondie from cult group to mainstream icons.
