#6 – Blondie – “Atomic” – (1979)

This is one of Blondie’s best songs. It topped the charts in the U.K. but only barely cracked the top 40 in the U.S. It’s a blend of new wave, disco and rock – in fact, it was released right at the dawn of new wave and acted sort of a prototype for many songs to follow. But I find it much cooler than most of the really 80s new wave that followed.
