Song of the Day: 'Shayla' by Blondie

Mind-blowing to see that today is Debbie Harry's 77th birthday. (Carly Simon also hit the milestone on June 25; they're just 3 1/2 years younger than my mother!) We all know that aging is different than it used to be. But Debbie takes it to such a new level -- she doesn't comport herself like an older person -- that I've almost begun to take her granted, skipping tours and feeling like she'll always be around. (Shame on me.) To mark her special day, here's a photo taken by Miss Guy plus one of her by Chris Stein in the recording studio yesterday along with one of Blondie's most beautiful songs. Happy birthday, Deb! 

"She's just a number ..."

With producer John Congleton.
