Song of the Day: 'Platinum Blonde' by Blondie

Although I first heard this song over 40 years ago when my brother Bill brought home a 7-inch EP featuring rare Blondie demos in college -- "Out in the Streets," "Puerto Rico" and "The Thin Line" were also on it -- I don't know if I knew that "Platinum Blonde" was the first song Debbie Harry ever wrote until I read about it this new article. The track never made it past demo form. But it's cute and especially fun to listen to all these years later set to rare footage from the '70s, which you can view below:
