One of Blondie's monster number one hits. The song is a cover and excursion into another musical genre. "The Tide is High" was written by John Holt and a 1966 hit for the Jamaican group The Paragons. So Blondie goes reggae influence and "The Tide is High" is actually about romantic yearning: "The tide is high but I'm holding on, I'm gonna be your number one, every girl wants you to be her man." There is a reggae vibe but by no means pure reggae.This is Blondie after all. "The Tide is High" is lushly produced with horns and strings and just has a great sound. The sound helped drive "Autoamerican" to platinum album status.
