Throwback Thursday – Retro Track of the Week

blondie_2Song: 11:59
Artist: Blondie
Year: 1978

One of the few Blondie tracks credited solely to keyboardist Jimmy Destri, ’11:59’ stands as a hidden gem amongst the more celebrated tracks from 1978’s iconic “Parallel Lines.” Departing from their purely punk and new wave origins, the collaboration with Australian producer Mike Chapman made for a poppier, more eclectic affair and “Parallel Lines” was the New York band’s resounding commercial breakthrough. Even alongside several of Blondie’s best loved singles, including ‘One Way or Another’ and ‘Heart of Glass,’ its catchy melody and infectious organ solo make ’11:59’ one of the highlights of a wonderful album.
