American Gigolo: Call Me, Blondie
The movie: American Gigolo
The song: 'Call Me', Blondie
Though Giorgio Moroder had originally approached Fleetwood Mac singer Stevie Nicks for this project, the collaboration with Blondie ultimately produced one of the band’s biggest hits. Debbie Harry claims she wrote the song in a few hours after being inspired by the film's opening scene of Richard Gere cruising around California in a convertible.
Bonus knowledge: 'Call Me' was the biggest-selling single of 1980 in the US.
