Music Monday: Blondie's "Rapture"

Blondie's "Rapture" came up on shuffle the other day, and I couldn't help but smile. If you appreciate music, you must appreciate Blondie as well as this song. While it wasn't the first song to feature rapping, it was the first one to top the charts, and was the first rap video ever aired on MTV. And Deborah Harry, the Playboy bunny turned rock star, took the world by storm.

This song is a combination of so many genres: disco, jazz, pop, hip hop, New Wave, and the rap piece, that it appeals to a wide audience. Plus, Debbie has always been so fresh and funky with so much character, you can't help but love her. She's beautiful, talented, fashionable, and memorable. I love Blondie, do you?
