Gwen Stefani's got nothing on this one

Sorry...I'm telling ya, I will be over this Youtube phase someday. It's just so...amazing.

Check out the Blondie stage style here and tell me No Doubt didn't copy it lock, stock and barrel:



When I met you in the restaurant
You could tell I was no debutante
You asked me what's my pleasure
A movie or a measure?
I'll have a cup of tea and tell you of my dreaming
Dreaming is free
I don't want to live on charity
Pleasure's real or is it fantasy?
Reel to reel is living rarity
People stop and stare at me We just walk on by - we just keep on dreaming
Feet feet, walking a two mile
Meet meet, meet me at the turnstile
I never met him, I'll never forget him

Dream dream, even for a little while
Dream dream, filling up an idle hour
Fade away, radiate

I sit by and watch the river flow
I sit by and watch the traffic go
Imagine something of your very own
Something you can have and hold
I'd build a road in gold just to have some dreaming
Dreaming is free

"Dreaming"
Harry/Stein, 1979


Was Madonna always credited with popularizing blonde hair and dark roots?


"The Tide Is High," John Holt
recorded by Blondie, 1980


Here is the iconic Blondie...with the makeup look still done today (white shimmer shadow on inner corners of eyes, "smoky" liner, red gloss). I actually remember this dress...no one else was wearing it at the time that I knew of...it struck me as very New York (check out the Twin Towers in the beginning of the video).


"Heart of Glass"
Harry/Stein, 1978


The problem with being seminal is that people tend to remember the imitators far more readily than the original. Oh well, I gotta go now and touch up my roots. lol
