OK, so why are the fundies so enamored with Blondie?
I mean, this isn't the best of their songs:

Ground breaking, but the rap is lame.

3. I love Call Me, and even Heart of Glass...
but not that one. The beginning is OK, but Debbie Harry was not a rapper.

10. It actually would have been a perfect song if they had a real rapper guest on it.
Probably wouldn't have been as popular though.

5. I didn't think think the fundies knew who Blondie is/were
They were pretty avant-garde for the time.

She brought Rap mainstream. That's no mean feat.

And I actually sorta wanted to BE Debbie Harry. She's hot and smart. Can't beat that. :-)

6. Prehaps it's her support of Gay rights?
As proven in this awesome vid: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lRvhRhWWE44

12. Wow....you went a long way for that punch line
I look forward to your next joke about, say, Glenn Campbell.

15. I'm familiar with their work

The connection took an explanation.

Hey! Why do 7th Day Adventists love Hal Linden?

18. It's because of his legendary love of pistachios, right?
That's gotta be it.

8. you know..
she's probably on the tribulation map or something. after all, she does say "Face to face /
Sadly solitude / And it's finger popping / Twenty-four hour shopping in Rapture"//

24 hour shopping--Walmart! gotta be the end times!

21. What rap? She's singing in the microphone - not talking into it.
Okay, 2:06 mark is where she's talking into the mic.

And despite all that, it's music in the background. Not a repeating sample of someone else's music or the pre-encoded 8 note riff on the $30 fisher price keyboard at Target.
