Summer Music - Hanging On The Telephone & Picture This


In 1978, a band named Blondie shook the world when they released the album Parallel Lines. It was their third release, and while the first two found success in the UK, it was this one that rocketed to success in the US, making the name for the band. While it was the third single, Heart of Glass, that topped the charts, the first two singles were getting noticed by college radio on the strength of the Punk pedigree of the band. The second single was one of my favorites from the album, Hanging On The Telephone.

The first single was the lovely Picture This. Well, it was as lovely and sweet as Debbie Harry was going to get. I later believed it was the inspiration for the writers of the Golden Girls when they wrote about Sophia telling stories...
