"One Way or Another" is a song by Blondie which is about a stalker. The lyrics are very dark and go into detail about a guy with evil intentions, but the music is very light and catchy, which masked the meaning of the song.

With radio-friendly songs like this, Blondie was one of the first Punk bands to have pop success. They played clubs like CBGB's (stands for Country, BlueGrass, Blues) with bands like The Ramones and Television, but their songs were much lighter and led to mainstream acceptance. The Police and Talking Heads are other groups that came out of that scene.

This song was used in the Rugrats movie. (thanks, Bob - Santa Barbara, CA)
