Can you tell the difference between a Blondie song and a Love Boat story?

Can you find rapture — or will this quiz trick you one way or another?

In the late 1970s and early 1980s, love was in the discos and on the water. Two of the biggest things going in pop culture were The Love Boat and Blondie. The two had a lot more in common than you might think.

Both Debbie Harry and the Love Boat screenwriters had a way of writing about romance with sharp wit, and Blondie seemed a bit obsessed with writing about the ocean. 

On paper, a Blondie song title and Love Boat episode can sound, well, rather interchangeable. Don't believe us? Try to get more than 12 correct!

14 out of 17. Since "Plastic Letters" is one of their albums I'm not familiar with, I'm happy with the results. Now to check out that album...

You got 12 out of 17 - Considering I know 2 Blondie songs, I'll take this score.

"Island of Lost Souls" -- The most UNDERRATED Blondie song ever! Released as a single from their final LP for Chrysalis, "The Hunter." The band was starting to fall apart at the time (mid-1982), and the record company only gave it lukewarm promotional support (the fact that MTV limited broadcast of the accompanying video to late-night hours didn't help much, either). Still, the single managed to crack the Top 40. Look up this long-lost gem on YouTube and enjoy! (Trivia: On their 1982 summer tour, Blondie was supported by a new group of lads who would turn the pop world upside down only a few months later: Duran Duran!)

10/17. Not bad considering I wasn't a fan of either. All of them were guesses.
