Blondie is an American rock band co-founded by singer Debbie Harry, and guitarist Chris Stein.
The band were pioneers in the American punk and then the new wave scene of the mid-1970s in New York. Its first two albums contained strong elements of these genres, and although highly successful in the United Kingdom and Australia, Blondie was regarded as an underground band in the United States until the release of Parallel Lines in 1978. Over the next three years, the band achieved several hit singles including "Heart of Glass", "Call Me", "Rapture" and "The Tide Is High". The band became noted for its eclectic mix of musical styles incorporating elements of disco, pop, reggae, and early rap music.

"Sunday Girl" is a song from their 1978 album 'Plastic Letters'.
Written by guitarist Chris Stein, the song was inspired by Debbie Harry's cat, who was named Sunday Man—the cat had recently run away, inspiring the song's "plaintive" nature.
"Sunday Girl" was released as the follow-up single to the band's number one hit single, "Heart of Glass," in the UK and Europe (though not in the US). The single was a number 1 hit in the UK and Ireland and reached the top ten in several European countries. In The Netherlands it reached no. 22 in the Top 40.
