My first introduction to Blondie was during their second wave when they released Maria in 1999. It reached the number one spot in the UK charts, a position they hadn’t occupied in almost 2 decades. It wasn’t until my teen years that I delved into blondie some more and I discovered them to be one of the most prominent American punk/new-wave bands of the 80s. Let’s learn to play One Way Or Another on the ukulele.
