Blondie – Hanging On The Telephone – TROS TOP 50 (1979) – TopPop

TopPop – 19th May 1979

This Blondie performance on the TROS Top50 show was first broadcast on the episode 47 of May 19, 1979.

“Hanging on the Telephone” is a song written by Jack Lee. The song was first performed by his short-lived US West Coast power pop band The Nerves; later in 1978, it was recorded and released as a single by the American rock band Blondie.
Blondie had discovered the song via a cassette tape compilation which Jeffrey Lee Pierce had given the band. Beginning with a phone sound-effect courtesy of producer Mike Chapman, Blondie’s version of the song was released on the band’s breakthrough third album, Parallel Lines. The single was a top five hit in the UK and has since seen critical acclaim as one of the band’s best songs.

This is to let you know that the video recording of the video clip was originally recorded by AVROTROS Broadcasting.
