    She has such a striking, beautifully shaped face and still looks great at 71 but it's time she gave up on leggings and thigh length dresses.

    Her sound has never had any appeal for me as I find her voice kind of thin.

    Have you ever seen Debbie? She has and always had perfect teeth, aristocratically leaning a bit inward.

    Appropriately out of focus. And her voice IS thin. Why was she ever popular? Must have been advertising. Well, Willie is still at it at 84.

    I have never heard of aristocratic type teeth.

    In the description of a girl, through main person (man, writer's alter ego), her teeth were described with words "inwards" "and aristrocratic"...

    With regard to a thin voice I discovered this:

    The more air that resonates, the richer and fuller the voice sounds. If the tongue is raised high in the mouth, as it usually is in a thin voice, then it takes up more room.

    A serious question. Do you think that Debbie Harry's mouth looks like her tongue is raised high in her mouth? Maybe it has something to do with her aristocratic slanting incisors? Do people's looks have any bearing on their voice and how they sound when they sing?

    And, btw, it should be "Blondie IS back."

    Talking about the band as a unit, it is singular, and takes a singular verb.

    Americans and British speakers (for example) differ over this plural/singular thing with 'groups' like "Blondie" and "Chelsea" and "my family". In British English, the plural is used more frequently than in American English.

    Like 'the senate is deliberating' V The Senators ARE deliberating'. Which of course is an oxymoron to begin with but just saying....
