#songoftheday / LYRIC VIDEO: Blondie – “I Want To Drag You Around”

While Blondie’s 2011 album Panic of Girls wasn’t bad, especially when compared to pop albums by other artists, I was slightly disappointed with it, having hoped for another album in the vein of The Curse of Blondie from 2003.  You see, if you asked me to name my favorite Blondie album, I might very well say The Curse of Blondie.  I thought that one easily held up to the high standards they’d set twenty years earlier.  But Panic of Girls just didn’t grab me the way I wanted it to.  In any case, they’ve got a new album called Ghosts of Download coming out in a few weeks on May 13th and they’ve just unveiled the above lyric video for the lead track, “I Want To Drag You Around.”  And it’s made of awesome.  Glimmering synths, a luscious bass guitar groove, hypnotic percussion,  infectious guitars,  and Debbie Harry sounding half-stoned — it’s got all of the elements of a classic Blondie tune.  It might not be immediately catchy enough for today’s pop radio to play it, but, for me, it was love at first listen and I’m sure any self-respecting fans of truly artistic pop music will just eat it right up.  So, go on, take a bite.
