Power, Passion Plays A Double Hand...


As it was the first single I bought with my own money it seems only befitting to post it today to celebrate the 70th birthday of the one and only Debbie Harry. It goes without saying that she has had a huge influence in music ever since Blondie emerged from the New York City punk scene in the 70s, and thankfully shows no sign of slowing down today.

Happy 70th Debbie.

    1. Great post Robster, if Union City blue was your first record it would be great, if it was Ghost town that would be pretty special. Still, for me, quite possibly the best Number 1 single ever in the UK

  7. Good first single, absolute classic song and great video. It would have been in my first dozen or so singles. These days I play Dreaming more.
