Joe Iconis: "Heart of Glass" (Blondie) "Heart of Glass" never specifically mentions our fair city, but to me it's the ultimate New York song by the ultimate New York band. Just the idea of a rock band with a punk spirit stepping outside their comfort zone to cut a silly disco record, and creating an accidental masterpiece in the process, is so New York. The record is filled with so much attitude and swagger, but it's also shimmery and weird and kind of otherworldly. Not to mention that I've always thought that "Heart Of Glass" is set to the tempo that every true New Yorker naturally walks at.
