BLONDIE - HEART OF GLASS (Lost Hit)
Released in 1979, 'Heart of Glass' made heavy use of the 'Roland CR-78 Drum Machine' .... New Technology back then.
There was controversy when this song came out because it pulled away from common rock roots and shifted towards Disco, and they used the word 'Ass', being squeaky clean late 70s, that was a no-no, and the BBC blanked it out..
(Original lyrics = Once I had a love, it was a gas. Soon turned out, it was a pain in the ass)....
I love this song, such a good sound that still sounds good today...
