The Tide is High

As it says in wikipedia:

The Tide is High is a 1967 song written by John Holt, originally performed by Jamaican group The Paragons, with John Holt as lead singer. The song went unnoticed in the rest of the world, until rediscovered in 1980, when it became a number one hit for Blondie.

Thanks to Mary Ann Hobbs for bringing this original to my attention
