Today’s song is definitely an ICBWHDTOB (I Can’t Believe We Haven’t Done This One Before). The band was formed in 1974 by a guitarist and an ex-Playboy bunny singer. They were considered an underground punk and then new wave band until they released their Parallel Lines album. With the release of today’s hit, they established themselves as a hit with the more mainstream public, as well.
Then came the video….okay, guys, you know the video….the green, seemingly see-through dress, the sexy moves….okay…I was in love LOL. While it was their third single to be released, it was the tune that would put them over-the-top. For many of their underground fans, it was as if they had sold out due to the disco-infused sound of the song. Despite that, it went to number one in 10 countries including the U.S.
The singer became an actress, as well, scoring a major role in the movie Videodrome (what a strange movie!) She has had parts in over 45 films.

Once I had a love and it was a gas
The answer, of course, was Blondie aka Debbie Harry with Heart of Glass. One commentator said on youtube that she is so pretty on this video that it hurts to look at her. A sentiment that I can certainly relate to (as well as Mike I surmise). Reason enough to present her and the following on Mystery Lyrics today 😉
