With their gold selling single ‘Denis’,

in 78, Blondie reached a UK No.2 slot,

and ‘(I’m Always Touched By Your) Presence Dear’,

again on Chrysalis, gave them a Top Ten spot.

 

Then, still in 78, followed ‘Picture This’, at No.12,

and at No.5 arrived  ‘Hanging On The Telephone’,

and with their next two singles reaching  No.1 in 79

the UK chart, they made their own.

 

With platinum-selling single ‘Heart Of Glass’

and gold-seller ‘Sunday Girl’, setting the scene.

Followed by ‘Dreaming’, which made No.2,

with ‘Union City Blues’ making No.13.

 

In 80, gold-seller ‘Atomic’, still on Chrysalis-

being another UK No.1 they had won,

with ‘Call Me’ and ‘The Tide Is High’

in the US and UK, both reaching No.1.

 

In 81, US No.1 ‘Rapture’ made a UK No.5,

and in 82, next to fall into line 

was ‘Island Of Lost Souls’ at No.11,

and ‘War Child’ at No.39.

 

In 88 came ‘Denis (remix)’ at No.50,

and in 89, at No.61 ‘Call Me (remix)’.

Then 94 saw ‘Atomis (remix)’ reach No.19,

and in 95, at No.15 ‘Heart Of Glass (remix)’

 

‘Union City Blues’ made No.31, also in 95,

(and their last hit on Chrysalis, proved to be),

and in 99, gold-seller ‘Maria’ on Beyond, a UK No.1,

 pleasing fans as far as the eye could see. 

 

‘Nothing Is Real But The Girl’, also in 99 on Beyond,

came next, reaching No.26,

and in 03 ‘Good Boys’ on Epic, at No.12 –

the last hit in this nostalgic Blondie mix.
