Maria by Blondie was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, February 13, 1999 spending 1 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. This was Blondie's comeback song - their lead singer Debbie Harry was 53 when it was released. The band re-formed in 1998 for a tour and album after breaking up in 1982. The band was gone for about a generation, which meant there were a lot of new fans who were just discovering Blonde and hearing their earlier hits for the first time. When this hit #1 in the UK, Blondie became the first act to have #1s in the UK in the '70s, '80s and '90s.
