This was the second successive UK #1 for Blondie, in May 1979, just a few months after Heart Of Glass.

mp3 : Blondie – Sunday Girl (French Version)
mp3 : Blondie – I Know But I Don’t Know
They didn’t get the hat-trick however, as the next release, Dreaming stalled at #2 some 17 months later.
But Blondie would go on to enjoy another three #1 hits in 1980, making them, without question, the most commercially successful band of the era.
And with the unexpected success of Maria, they would also go on to have a sixth song reach #1 come 1999. Not sure if nineteen years between #1 singles is some sort of record or not….particularly when it involves a new and not re-released song. Can’t be bothered looking it up though.
Oh and it was pure chance that a band from NYC was scheduled to feature the day after I found the space for the lastest treat from JTFL and Echorich.
