Can you complete the lyrics to Blondie's ''Heart of Glass''?

Celebrate 40 years of "The Disco Song."

If you asked Blondie what sent "Heart of Glass" to No. 1 in 1979, their answer might surprise you. After the song was joked about as "The Disco Song" on WKRP in Cincinnati, the band gave the series so much credit for giving them critical exposure, they actually donated the "Heart of Glass" Gold record to the show. You can sometimes see it hanging in the bullpen when you're watching episodes on MeTV.

Which brings us to today's quiz. The lyrics to "Heart of Glass" are as singular as the series that launched the hit, but how well do you actually remember the literal words Debbie Harry's singing?

We've snipped out choice lyrics from the song below. See if you can make it through the quiz without missing a beat. Guard your heart and good luck!

Only chicks get lyrics right. I still think it's big old Jed had a light on and not big old jet airliner.

9/10; I did very well this time and am pleased with my score. I usually do poorly with song lyrics.

I got 4 out of 10 correct, which is really bad for me. I have heard it a lot on the radio over the years, but didn't pay attention to the words.

I always thought it was"Soon turn out to be a pain in A**.
MaryHelen anthony 2 months ago
it was "pain in the ass" in original versions, but censure and radio/club non-play brought about the changed lyric

9/10. One of my favorite songs at the time, along with "Hit Me With Your Best Shot". Now I prefer more restful music like "Let It Be". It helps me get thru some of the hard times.

8/10! Well, my streak has broken! Kind of a shock it would be this quiz since I was a Blondie fan and saw them live TWICE!

These lyric quizzes are always harder then you think there gonna be.Even if your a big fan.I had a feeling this was gonna get ya.In
fact I thought you were gonna play it safe and pass on this one.πŸ‘Congrats on your streak.Start another one.When Joe DiMaggio's 56 game hittng streak ended,he started another one that went for another 22 or so games.

I was 3/10 but since i never heard the song before i just guessed on most of the answers.
Couldn't help but notice the "Days of Our Lives" logo, you go Andrew! My Granny taught me to watch these "stories" back in the 60's! I STILL watch them today! Lol
