Something 4 The Weekend # 160

"Now the reason we're here..."
Speaking of righteous babes, here's Chrissie Hynde, along with her three other Pretenders, laying down one of Chrissie's more earnest songs, a song about a man and woman in love, a song about a city full of other lovers, and pretty soon it's a song about all of us, about life...
"We are all of us in the gutter...Some of us are looking at the stars..."
And then it comes back around to Chrissie and her man, the music shifting from a somewhat awkward shuffle to a more urgent, confident stride. It all adds up to one of the true gems in Ms. Hynde's songbook, one that is sometimes overlooked, perhaps...
"Talk to me, darling..."
Hotcha! Hank
