“Call Me”, Blondie’s big hit from the ‘American Gigolo‘ film which starred Richard Gere in 1980 went to number one in three countries; the USA, Canada and the UK. It was also included on the band’s ‘Autoamerican‘ album. The writing credit goes to Giorgio Moroder and Debbie Harry. However the song was originally not earmarked for Blondie; Giorgio Moroder had written the instrumental track for the ‘American Gigolo’ soundtrack but had initially wanted to give it to Stevie Nicks off of Fleetwood Mac. I wonder how that would have turned out? I reckon that it would have been pretty good!
