* RefrainFromAssuming: "Rapture" is not titled "The Man From Mars" even though the rap portion of the song, providing a detailed list of actions by that man, is more memorable than the singing portion that ends with the word "rapture".

* TheCoverChangesTheGender: "Denise" became "Denis".

to:

* TheCoverChangesTheGender: "Denise" became "Denis". Averted with their cover of "I'm Gonna Love You Too" by Buddy Holly, which retains the line "After all, another fella took ya": Intentionally or not, this makes it sound like the narrator's male love interest left with another man.

* ChristmasCake: Very nicely and notably averted. Debbie Harry was already well into her 30s by the time the band hit it big. It didn't stop her from becoming a sex symbol at all.

* ''[[http://www.mtvmusic.com/blondie/videos/18111/rapture.jhtml Rapture]]'' - the earliest example of a rock band performing rap music (the parent album was released just a month before TheClash's ''Music/{{Sandinista}}'', which contained "The Magnificent Seven")

** 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.
