Heart Of Glass

Released as the third single off of Parallel Lines in early 1979, and was referred to by the band as "the disco song." (It only actually got to No. 58 in Billboard's Disco Top 80 chart though) Speaking of Billboard charts, even in 1979 labels were freaking out about sales and pirated albums: https://bit.ly/2mdOmD2

Opening track off the London band's 2011 release A Different King of Fix. “Structurally it’s more similar to The Chemical Brothers than other bands" said frontman Jack Steadman about the song. "Everything is on a loop, even the lyrics. There’s only one section but different parts fall in and out.”
