"Sunday Girl" was a UK number-one single by Blondie for three weeks in May 1979. It was Blondie's second UK number-one single after "Heart of Glass", it was however never released as a single in the US. The song was written by Chris Stein and was the fourth single to be taken from the album "Parallel Lines" in the UK and most other parts of the world. The French language version of the track was first released in the UK on the "Sunday Girl" 12" single, in France and the Netherlands it was the B-side of the 7". For Blondie's first greatest hits album "The Best of Blondie" in 1981 producer Mike Chapman created a special mix which incorporated one verse sung in French. The bilingual version appears on the 2002 compilation "Greatest Hits"

The single had an unusual release in Australia, with some dispute among fans as to whether it reached #1 there or failed to chart. This is due to its initial release as the lead single from "Parallel Lines", due to its being reminiscent of "In The Flesh", Blondie's first hit in Australia. "Sunday Girl" failed to chart however, and was later re-released as a double A-Side with "Heart of Glass" on the back of its UK success. As a result, it was eclipsed by the disco track and is rarely recognised as having charted in its own right.
