‘Dreaming’ by Blondie – Classic Hit or Miss
“Dreaming” was released in 1979, it was the lead single from their fourth album Eat to the Beat. It peaked at #2 in the British singles chart. “Dreaming” was written by the group’s principal songwriting partnership, Deborah Harry and Chris Stein.
The power pop sound of the record is one of its trademarks as is the opening line “When I met you in the restaurant, you could tell I was no debutante”. The song is also influenced by the popular Phil Spector phenomenon, the wall of sound, which utilizes multiple layers of instrumentation to create a full and voluminous sound.
A music video was produced to promote the single featuring Debbie Harry wearing a solid blue unitard and matching sheer blouse designed by Stephen Sprouse. [SOURCE]
