LADIES FIRST: "His Heart Is Out In the Streets"
LADIES FIRST brings you another classic that "she did first".
The original "Out In the Streets" was by the great SHANGRI-LAS, whose middle ground between uptown girl and biker girl made this song a perfect choice, and set the stage for acts like The New York Dolls, Suzi Quatro, and The Runaways after them.

BLONDIE let its mid 60's roots show constantly, with their retro Mod clothes, 'With The Beatles'-style album covers, and Girl Group harmonies. One of the first things they ever recorded was a demo of this song:
