Freebase

  1. Maria

    "Maria" is a song by the American band Blondie, taken from their 1999 album No Exit. This song was Blondie's comeback single, their first since "War Child" in July 1982. In the UK, it was the band's sixth no. 1 single, topping the charts exactly 20 years after their first UK number one "Heart of Glass" in the spring of 1979. The song was written by the band's keyboardist Jimmy Destri, who had also penned some of their earlier hits such as "Atomic". In the US, the single reached number 14 on the Adult Top 40 listing, although it stalled at a disappointing #82 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. In the UK the single was released as a two CD set, the first containing remixes of "Maria", and the second containing live versions of "Screaming Skin" and their very first hit single "In the Flesh". The line "...like a millionaire/walking on imported air" was used in a previous Blondie song, "Walk Like Me", from the album Autoamerican.
