Song of the Day: 'Don't Be Cruel' by Debbie Harry


I somehow missed this when it first came out on an Otis Blackwell tribute album in 1993. (Hell, would you believe Debbie Harry's Debravation tour made a stop two blocks from my apartment in D.C. back in '94 that I learned about this year?!) That was life before the internet.

But I recently remembered Deb's cover of "Don't Be Cruel" when I came across these photos of Deb looking fetching during a visit to Graceland! 

Ditto for my completely missing "Summertime Blues” until years after the fact.
