The word "Rapture" is also a play on the rap aspect of the song. As the age of disco ended, so did Blondie's success. This was their last US hit until 1999, when they had a comeback song called " Maria I might also add, Trouble Every Day, by Frank Zappa and the Mothers, from their 1966 debut album, Freak Out.
