Watch: Blondie’s ‘Heart of Glass’ Live from the Apollo in 1979

The #1 hit single “Heart of Glass,” written by Debbie Harry and Chris Stein, was the third single off the bands third album, Parallel Lines , released in 1979. Harry & Stein originally wrote “Heart of Glass” as a demo in 1974 with the working title “Once I Had a Love,” which featured a slower & funkier sound with a notable disco beat. Blondie performed the song live from the Apollo in Glasgow in 1979.

The song is ranked at number 56 in the UK’s official list of biggest selling singles of all-time with sales of 1.3 million copies.

Blondie’s new album Pollinator revisited the American new wave bands’ old roots with songs like “Long Time” and “Already Naked.”
