Added DiffLines:

** They also skip a beat in "I'm on E", appropriately on the line 'skip a beat', and in "Detroit 442", which catches off people trying to play along to Clem Burke's drumming.

Added DiffLines:

** "Call Me" and "Rapture" have shades of this too, though the latter also features rapping.


Added DiffLines:

* EpicRocking: The full, extended version of "Call Me" is definitely this- it's over 8 minutes long! "Heart Of Glass" ''almost'' counts- it's just shy of 6.


Added DiffLines:

* MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness: Their harder, PunkRock-influenced early work fairly often reached 5 ("One Way Or Another" is a good example), and on the whole, their work covers the whole lower half of the spectrum.

Added DiffLines:

* UncommonTime: Yes, Blondie of all bands have an example of this trope, and in one of their best known songs to boot. In the instrumental parts of "Heart of Glass" the band will frequently skip a beat three times in an eight-measure pattern, meaning that there is a popular {{disco}} song containing examples of UncommonTime. (The exact pattern, in case you're wondering, is 4+3+4+3+4+3+4+4/4, meaning that there are twenty-nine beats in the cycle instead of the popular 32).

Added DiffLines:

* LyricalDissonance: "One Way or Another" is a catchy, upbeat little ditty about ... a stalker ex-boyfriend that Debbie Harry had.


Added DiffLines:

* VisualPun: The cover of ''Parallel Lines'' is the band standing in front of a background of black-and-white, well, parallel lines, looking cool.
