In the late 1970s and early 1980s, love was in the discos and on the water. Two of the biggest things going in pop culture were The Love Boat and Blondie. The two had a lot more in common than you might think.

Both Debbie Harry and the Love Boat screenwriters had a way of writing about romance with sharp wit, and Blondie seemed a bit obsessed with writing about the ocean. 

On paper, a Blondie song title and Love Boat episode can sound, well, rather interchangeable. Don't believe us? Try to get more than 12 correct!

A baker's dozen. I was never on board with Blondie or TLB.

Probably my best "guessing" score EVER!! "Heart of Glass" was the only one I was confident about.
Watched just enough "Love Boat" to have a rough sense of their titles. And all I really remember of Blondie is the Dead Dog Records story arc in the "Wiseguy" TV series with Ken Wahl.

15/17. Not quite sure how I managed that. I only knew a handful of Blondie songs. 🤲

14/17. Knew a lot of Blondie; otherwise, I'd have been totally lost.

16 / 17 missing #12. I have no idea how that was possible since neither the singer nor the series were on my radar in the 1980s except peripherally.

Probably lucky guesses. Blondie was more a 70's group, although a few years @ the beginning of the 80's. The Love Boat on the other hand spanned a good portion of the 80's.

Same one I missed. I kept waiting for "The Attack of the Giant Ants" or "Rip Her to Shreads". (That's how it was spelled on the original album release; no idea why I can't find any evidence of that on the web.)
