This post is dedicated to top blogger Tom Paine. If you listen to no other track, at least try the last one, Shayla – it shows she can actually sing.
Everyone has his Blondie moment and mine was when we went to a pub to watch Graham Parker and the Rumour [I’ve probably mentioned this a thousand times] and the buzz went round that Blondie had arrived, just to take in the performance.
This is the truth – I was standing with my mates, with beers in hand and this chick started pushing her way past with a drink in each hand. I looked down as she squeezed past me and £*&$% me if it wasn’t Deborah Harry.
I still haven’t got over that encounter. And to think I was going to say something terse to whoever it was. And yes – it did make all the difference, so there.
