She sounded fine on the live Isle of Wight clips. I don't like what the producers did to her voice on this clip. Still, I don't like any of the voices on the radio nowadays and I'm sure it has a lot to do with what happens in the studio. Maybe younger people who are used to that will like it.

Blondie on Beyonce, Longevity & New Album 'Girls Of Panic'
Groundbreaking New York band Blondie has been pushing genre boundaries for nearly 40 years. Led by iconic frontwoman Debbie Harry, Blondie was a pioneering force in the new wave and punk scenes of the late '70s and early '80s, quick to experiment with sounds from reggae and rap. The band has been awarded for its adventurousness with international acclaim, four chart-topping Billboard Hot 100 singles, more than 40 million albums sold (according to Nielsen SoundScan) and a 2006 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
After some delay, the band released its ninth studio album, "Panic of Girls," in the U.K. this past spring. The release arrives in stateside Sept. 13, both physically and digitally, on Noble ID, the band's own imprint, with distribution by EMI. Harry, now 66 and going by Deborah, spoke to Billboard about the new album, the industry and staying ahead of the curve.

I like the new song. Good to see Debbie, Chris, and Clem still together. Love Debbie's "Dolly" hairstyle.

Oooh, I encountered her once. And she talked to me!
So I'm walking this down long hallway when suddenly this rambling blond chick walks out one of the random doors along this hallway. She's gibbering on and on and on until she finally turns around, takes one good look at me, and blurts out, "Oh, I thought you were someone else."
I gave her the finger when she wasn't looking.
And that's my Blondie story.
She is sooo petite!

That would be a fun one.

Debbie Harry is considering calling time on Blondie, says bandmate Clem Burke
But Burke says 'nothing is finalised yet' and the band are due to release a new album later this year (2013)
Blondie drummer Clem Burke has revealed that singer Debbie Harry is considering bringing the band to an end after 40 years.
"Debbie is 11 years older than the rest of us, so it's on her mind," 57-year-old Burke told the Daily Mail. "We've tried to keep it going for as long as possible, but it's not just up to me. Nothing is finalised yet, but obviously there's no Blondie without Debbie Harry."
Meanwhile, a spokesperson for Harry told the newspaper: "They are in a hiatus at the moment. They will do some tour dates next year. Nothing is confirmed yet."
Blondie completed an extensive UK tour earlier this month (July), including a set at Isle Of Wight Festival, and have a run of North American dates scheduled during September and October. The band are due to release a new album called 'Ghosts Of Download' later this year and the lead single, 'A Rose By Any Name', which features Gossip singer Beth Ditto, was released on iTunes last month.
The legendary band formed in New York in 1974 and went on hiatus eight years later, shortly after the release of their sixth album 'The Hunter'. Since reforming in 1997, the band have toured regularly and released three studio albums: 'No Exit' (1997), 'The Curse Of Blondie' (2003) and 'Panic Of Girls' (2011).

Blondie's Chris Stein Reveals Trove of Rare Seventies Photos
Debbie Harry, Joan Jett talk punk underground at Los Angeles opening
On August 9th, Blondie guitarist Chris Stein returned to the decade that launched his band, opening an exhibition of his photography at the Morrison Hotel Gallery, Sunset Marquis Hotel, in West Hollywood. Debbie Harry, Joan Jett and other survivors of the Seventies underground music scenes in New York and L.A. depicted in the pictures joined him to remember how it all began.
"Chris was the one who taught me how to relax in front of the camera," Harry recalled to Rolling Stone, sitting with her ex-boyrfriend Stein as guests crowded into the small gallery. "I didn't think I would really enjoy doing it until he started shooting me. We had an intimacy. It was never that serious. It was just fun to do."
500 Greatest Albums: Blondie's Parallel Lines
Some of those same pictures were among the first that many fans ever saw of Harry, who began appearing on international magazine covers once Blondie exploded into the mainstream with their 1978 album, Parallel Lines. "It was a really wonderful time, a lot of great music, and I was living my dream," Harry said. "I was in a touring, working rock & roll band that really got up people's noses."
