30 Songs in 30 Days Challenge – Day 22 – the punk one

My lovely and talented friend Sarah (see day 1 for link) started this challenge.

I am going to do this the way Sarah did – a song every day and with a few lines about why I like each artist and song, and why it is significant for me. I am as much about the music as the words by the way, so I have to like both if I include a song.

Please feel free to join in this challenge with your own lists!

‘Atomic’ by Blondie

The punk era largely passed me by but like any teenage boy with a pulse I had a thing for Blondie’s Debbie Harry. That their music was great is a bonus too! A ‘Best of’ album is in the stack next to the player in the room where I draw. The opening riff of ‘Atomic’ arose from a quite deliberate but light-hearted attempt to emulate the sound of a spaghetti western theme.
