Watch Blondie Celebrate 40th Birthday on ‘Daily Show’
New-wave icons performed new song "Sugar on the Side" and classic "One Way or Another"
Blondie have been a band for 40 years as of 2014, and they’re still gonna getcha-getcha-getcha. Frontwoman Debbie Harry recently joined Arcade Fire onstage as they covered the iconic new-wave band’s disco hit “Heart of Glass,” and the full group performed in February at Brooklyn’s Pussy Riot tribute concert (they wisely turned down a gig at the Sochi Olympics, though). Last night, promoting brand new hits package Blondie 4(0) Ever, they stopped by The Daily Show. Host Jon Stewart chatted briefly with Harry and the group’s other founding member, Chris Steyn, and Blondie performed not just new song “Sugar on the Side” (above) — from the hits set’s new-album component Ghosts of Download — but also the classic “One Way or Another” (below). Just for fun: Have you heard Blondie’s Spanish-language version of Blondie 4(0) Ever smash “Call Me”?
