Debbie Harry (updated) - French Kissin' In The USA

Not my favorite-ever of Debbie's but I just now noticed her voice in a fresh light... it's really amazing, isn't it? Sort of larger than life, a unique quality to it.





And Debbie's (Deborah who?) biggest solo hit, I Want That Man:




"I want to move like what's his name / I'll keep the money, you can have the fame."

Funny vid and title. Didn't see too much of the subject in it, though! (and what the doods were doing, in the end, sure didn't remind me of "French kissing!" :-/

I'll admit I avoided watching the video, the glimpses I saw made me suspect it's one of the many which are not in the same class as the song.

But they are her vids! ;-) She just did cheesy vids, in the 80's...much like everyone did! And...to be honest, I don't much care for most secular music vids, these days, anyway. They all seem to be promoting sex like there is nothing else that makes the world go around. Most lyrics suck as well!

Arguably.

True enough, music videos is an art form, and as all such, really good ones are not common.

We all used to call her Blondie, but it turned out that she was DH all along, Blondie was the name of the band!
