Blondie_Heart_Of_GlassTime again for musical throwback Thursday.  The pick this week is Heart Of Glass by Blondie.  Have all ways thought this song came out in the 80’s because it was on a bunch of mix tapes I have from the time.  Can see why I thought that.  It is off their 1978 album Parallel Lines album.  Then the single was released in 1979.  Think the song holds up well.  You can give the remastered version a listen > here or below.
