Debbie HarryDebbie Harry is an American singer-songwriter and actress, best known as the lead singer of the new wave band Blondie. She recorded several worldwide number one singles with Blondie during the 1970s and 1980s. Her acting career spans over 60 film roles and numerous television appearances. With her distinctive photogenic features and two-tone bleached-blonde hair, Harry quickly became a punk icon. Her look was further popularized by the band's early presence in the music video revolution of the era. She was a regular at Studio 54. In June 1979, Blondie was featured on the cover of Rolling Stone. Harry's persona, combining cool sexuality with streetwise style, became so closely associated with the group's name that many came to believe "Blondie" was the singer's name. Blondie released their debut album in 1976. It peaked at No. 14 in Australia and No. 75 in the UK. Their second album, Plastic Letters, garnered some success outside the United States, but their third album, Parallel Lines (1978) was a worldwide smash and shot the group to international success. It included the global hit single "Heart of Glass". Riding the crest of disco's domination, the infectious track hit No.1 in the US and sold nearly two million copies. It also reached No.1 in the UK and was the second highest selling single of 1979.
