Shayla worked in a factory
She wasn't history, she's just a number
One day she gets her final pay
And she goes far away, oh, oh

    Always reminds me of Silkwood, not entirely sure why, factory/bright lights on the freeway? EITHER WAY AMAZING.

    I loved this track even though I'm not really sure I do? I think perhaps it's just Deb's voice doing things to me again.....!

    Blondie had so many amazing songs but this has to be their most underrated. The last verse in particular is so beautifully done. "Cars on the freeway, bright lights and thunder..."

    Words are not adequate for how much this song moves me. For anyone who has ever felt like just a number... [2]

    Eat to the Beat is one of the best ablums ever, and this is probably the best track off it.

    Oh yeah, the best Blondie Song imo! Love it! Never was a big hit, but should have been, absolutely! And this live version ROCKS!

    An unfairly overlooked Blondie song.
