In 1980 Blondie gets their third UK No.1 with Atomic

Written by Debbie Harry and Jimmy Destri “Atomic” was first released on February 1980 in the UK as the third single from the band’s 1979 album “Eat to the Beat”, backed with “Die Young, Stay Pretty”. Deborah Harry stated once that when composing the song, Destri was trying to do “something like “Heart of Glass”, and then somehow or another we gave it the spaghetti western treatment” The song was produced as a mixture of new wave, rock and disco which had proven to be so successful in their No.1 hit from earlier in 1979, “Heart of Glass”.
