Blondie lead singer Debbie Harry actually wrote the lyrics to “One Way Or Another” as an attempt to use humor to address a dark encounter she had with a stalker.
The song’s lighthearted, playful vibe really helps to cover up the meaning behind the lyrics. What other songs do know of that are based on heavier themes than what they are portrayed to be? Let me know in the comments!
As we look at Debbie’s isolated vocal tracks we’ll see once again how the band really helped create the energy of the song and how her approach was actually very soft on the sound.
After I take you through the recording process I’m also going to demonstrate how we can contemporize the sound using some added effects.
