Is 70 today. I saw Blondie after Harry had nursed Chris Stein back to health at my state fair. Happy Birthday!

Wow! 70?? Time does fly, doesn't it? old fart

She and her group Blondie had some "GoaT" hits back in the day:

"Heart of Glass" (1979)
YouTube link

"One Way or Another" (1979)
YouTube link

"Call Me" (from 'American Gigolo'; 1980)
YouTube link (official video)
YouTube link (soundtrack video)

"Atomic" (1980)
YouTube link
YouTube link

"The Tide Is High" (1980)
YouTube link

"Rapture" (1981)
YouTube link

By the way, I seem to remember that when they had their first Number One hit, some people initially believed they named the group after the classic comic strip character "Blondie", or that that was Ms. Harry's actual name (because of her blonde hair). Anyhoo, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Ms. Harry, and thank you for all the cool tunes!

thumbs up

When I saw this on the news this morning it made me feel old.

Then I realized that Ms. Harry was in her 30s during the peak of Blondie's success, which made me feel better.

Olivia was beautiful and talented and made Errol Flynn look good in several movies. 98!
