This is a surprise. I was going to say odd but it's not. It's musicians loving music. It is funny tho to see Porl Thompson from the Cure with Page/Plant. fr 95.

Giorgio Moroder originally wanted Stevie Nicks to record "Call Me." She declined. Blondie was brought on board. I believe Debbie Harry revamped the lyrics a bit, but my memory might be failing me.

I've been reading up on them. You got that right.

Doing my Blondie deep dive I discovered this. I knew they had many versions of this tune & sat on it for a long time, only satisfied until the Parallel Lines version. This "original" came out on the cd re-issue of their 2nd Plastic Letters. I love Debbie Harry.

re audrey williams from old music thread (i couldn't "quote reply" cause it's closed)

d gray said:
can't recall anyone's voice that was that unpleasant to the ear, though i'm sure it's out there.
mjp replied:

Oh, it's out there. And I guess if we go back to 78s, everyone's voice sounded like nails on a chalkboard.

anyways, i stand corrected.

For the gun toting go go dancers. I remember a girl in the Spanaway Speedway grandstands carrying a pistol about 30 years ago. Security/sherriff decided alcohol (half price beer on red flags) and guns was a bad policy despite the boyfriend's 2nd amendment argument.
