Music video time! Today I present a comparison between Blondie and a band I recently discovered via Pandora. First up Blondie: I had this significant moment on my recent vacation to Minnesota where I was a little under the influence and at Valley Fair (August 9th actually) when I decided to take a break from the rides and just relax and soak up the scenery.
Anyway, just then this Blondie song came on over the outdoor speaker system at the park, and I’ll never forget standing there when this song peaked (right after the first minute) and having a very rare moment of bliss. Ahhh… Like you’re already in this incredible mood, and then you get a chill through your spine… or like being so overwhelmed with positive energy that all you can do is just stand there with a stupid look on your face, enjoy the moment, and hope no one’s watching. Can’t wait to visit again next year!
Now the showdown:
Fair to compare to a young Deborah Harry? This also makes me wonder what a Gaga video would look like with a $250 budget…
