Blondie – Atomic (Leaping Ahead #188)

Leaping Ahead Project 2016 #188: 160706

[An 80’s song (7)]

The third single from their 1979 platinum-selling album ‘Eat to the Beat’, Blondie’s clever ploy of writing “Atomic” in E flat minor adds a haunting quality that has stayed with me since I first heard it and still brings goosebumps! The single was released in 1980 with ‘Die Young, Stay Pretty’ on the B-side.
