Behind the song: ''Call Me'' by Blondie
''The lyrics were inspired by my visual impressions from watching the film 'American Gigolo'. When I was writing it, I pictured the opening scene, driving on the coast of California." - Debbie Harry
''As soon as I heard Deborah singing a rough version of ‘Call Me,’ I knew we had a hit.'' - Giorgio Moroder
''We didn’t expect it, but it legitimised us in this country and made people realise that we were adventurous and had a vision that could transcend the styles of the day. We embraced the punk attitude. I hear bits and pieces of ‘Call Me’ in other people’s songs even today, not direct copies of it, but similarities.'' - Debbie Harry
