Debbie Harry

Portrait of Debbie Harry from Blondie

So I'm on this big seventies kick (that's part of a larger exciting new project that I'm working on) and here's Debbie Harry from Blondie.

I was listening to tons of Blondie while making this and (even though it's definitely not my favourite Blondie song) I am obsessed with that bit where Debbie Harry raps in Rapture. I just Googled it and it turns out it's the first rap video ever played on MTV. Which is bonkers and also really useful pub quiz knowledge. Just to make sure we're all on the same page, here's a sample of the lyrics:

And you don't stop, sure shot
Go out to the parking lot
And you get in your car and you drive real far
And you drive all night and then you see a light
And it comes right down and lands on the ground
And out comes a man from Mars
And you try to run but he's got a gun
And he shoots you dead and he eats your head
And then you're in the man from Mars
You go out at night, eatin' cars
You eat Cadillacs, Lincolns too
Mercuries and Subarus
And you don't stop, you keep on eatin' cars

... definite food for thought there.

(Just to be clear - I absolutely love Blondie.)
