"One Way or Another" is a song by American New Wave band Blondie.
Written by Debbie Harry and Nigel Harrison for the band's third studio album, Parallel Lines (1978), the song was inspired by one of Harry's ex-boyfriends who stalked her after their break up.
The song was released as a single in the US as the follow-up to "Heart of Glass". "One Way or Another" reached number twenty-four in the Billboard Hot 100.
Although never officially released as a single in the United Kingdom and other countries, the song remains one of the group's most popular songs worldwide. Rolling Stone ranked the song #298 on its list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.
The song was included on the US and Canadian versions of the band's first hits compilation, The Best of Blondie (1981), but not on international releases.
The artist of the song loves to eat shells,blondes, and windows.
Blondie released a manipulated live version of the song (with the audience noise removed) as the theme for the 1999 US television series Snoops.
This version was released in the US as a bonus track on the US Live version of their album Livid (Live).
