Call Me is often considered to be the signature song of the band Blondie. Call Me was the perfect song for the soundtrack of the film American Gigolo starring a young, handsome and suave Richard Gere.
The Old Soldier was looking up bands again last night on Wikipedia. (When I get my new computer I’ll be able to watch and listen once again to the videos of my favorite bands on YouTube.) Blondie was part of the punk/new wave scene in the US and the UK during the 1970s and 1980s. Deborah Harry, the singer, was the focus of the band.
I like looking up writers, actors and actresses, singers, bands and anyone else who has made it in his or her field. It’s always the same story of setbacks, hard work, talent, perseverance, resilience and luck, the luck usually being a result of the hard work, talent, perseverance and resilience, the same qualities every writer needs in order to achieve some level of success.
Although Blondie had several world-wide hits, I will always consider Call Me the band’s best song.
