Soon found out had a heart of (Philip) Glass



Oh, my dears.

Thanks to our lovely reader Julius Maloney, I was pointed in the direction of this work of genius - a most unexpected "mash-up" of two of our favourites here at Dolores Delargo Towers, Blondie's eternal Heart of Glass and Philip Glass's sublime Violin Concerto II:


Simply divine...

[And before you ask, no, I have never watched The Handmaid's Tale, in which this was featured.]

  1. Oh wow! Thanks for the shoutout. If you get the opportunity have a look at the series, the whole soundtrack for 'The Handmaid's Tale' is amazing and the series is equal parts terrifying and riveting (based on Margaret Atwood's book of the same name & especially considering the political climate in the US specifically). The use of this track was so powerful. I'm so glad you enjoyed the song. :)

    1. I doubt I'll be rushing towards the lovely Miss Atwood's telly adaptation, but the "mash-up" is indeed haunting... Jx

  2. The mash-up is very haunting, but I also find it a little jarring. I much prefer the picture of the glass heart!

    1. I had to listen more than once to get over the jarring mix, but for me, it works. Jx

  3. Extraordinary combination. Done correctly, it could be enormously effective in performance...

    1. An opportunity missed for both the BBC Proms and Miss Harry - maybe next year, we can but hope! Jx
