Living in the Real World

Blondie

Cifrado: Principal (guitarra y guitarra eléctrica)
tono: G
This is one of the best proofs of "rocky-punk styled" pop songs performed by Blondie.
Perfect lyrics and continuous drum beat.Teenagers' dream and softpunk queen, Debbie Harry
is marvellous on vocals, even screamin'.
"Eat to the Beat" is the weird and funny title of Blondie's 4th album. After the great selling
 success that "Parallel Lines" was, the band took a little time for writting new songs and
 prepare the new album. Songs like "Slow Motion", "Atomic", "Dreaming","Die Young, Stay
 pretty" and "Union City Blue" were written under the influence of many different cultural
 ambients like "Studio 54", the mytical disco, or Andy Warhol, the Pop Art genius, that was
 good friend of Debbie Harry and Chris Stein.
 "Eat to the Beat" was launched in 1979 and became quickly a new selling success for the band.
 Many songs were Hit Singles and everyday they were more popular.
 "Living in the real world" is a quite popular song, written by Jimmy Destri, the keyboards
 player. The song has got a rocky melody and you can see the Punk influence on lyrics and
 part of the melody (such as when Debbie starts screaming).
