A Pretenders Top Ten!

If you read my recent post “Musical Crushes = Powerhouse Women of Rock” (link below), you know that Chrissie Hynde of The Pretenders is one of my powerhouse women of rock! And yes, I had a huge crush on her and her music back in the day! Their music was different from the groups I had previously listened to and I was captured by their rock-n-roll image of rebellion and Chrissie’s sassy presentation of her powerhouse vocals. Sadly, I’ve never had the opportunity to see her play live and with COVID-19 shutting everything down, I don’t know if the opportunity will  present itself anytime soon. The one thing this pandemic cannot stop is my Pretenders Top Ten! Check it out and give them a listen!

And their new album “Hate for Sale” is set for release on July 17, 2020. Can’t wait to give it a listen!
