Can you name more Blondie songs than your friends? Go on. Try it…

PUBLISHED: 00:24 01 July 2017 | UPDATED: 00:33 01 July 2017

.

In honour of birthday girl Ms Debbie Harry – 72 today – we’ve got a simple idea: challenge your family and friends to name as many Blondie songs as they can

. .

No prizes for the winner – just the priceless glow of satisfaction. Bet you can’t get into double figures, though

. .

At the bottom of this article is a list of Blondie songs, from the chart-toppers to the ones that sank without trace. But….

. .

A few pictures first, because we want to give proper warning that the list is coming, so don’t be tempted to cheat….

. .

Just look at it when everyone has had a good think and is sure they’re not going to dredge up any more titles from the depths of their memory…

. .

OK – spoiler alert – the list is next. No peeping before it’s time, now. Good luck, and have fun. It’s not an exhaustive list, but it’s reasonably comprehensive. By the way, we’re not including Debbie Harry solo efforts here.
