Pretenders Lyrics


FORMED: 1978, London, England

After kicking around the US, UK and France for over a
decade, Chris Hynde finally wound up on the path that would
eventually lead her to the Pretenders. Towards the end of
1977, while living in squats around London, she met Tony
Secunda, onetime band manager of such acts as Steeleye Span
and The Move.

Chrissie, with Fred Berk (Johnny Moped) on bass and Nigel

    ------ About the song Time The Avenger performed by Pretenders

This has got to be one of the "coolest" songs The Pretenders ever created. It sounds like it should be featured in a mid-1960s spy flick (or, if M-tv ever started showing music videos again, this could be turned into a masterpiece!) The melody and rhythm is infectious and to this day I relish the wicked chuckle of "In your briefcase was your aftershave and underwear." I thought this years ago when I first heard it and I'll say it again; Time The Avenger is JUST COOL!

    ------ About the song I'll Stand By You performed by Pretenders

This is me and my boyfriend's song and he is off at National Guard Basic... so I listen to it a lot. He asked me to print the lyrics and send them to him so I am doing that :) Don't worry, I'm not stealing them. I'm typing them myself.

    ------ About the song I'll Stand By You performed by Pretenders

This is one of my all time favorite songs! chrissie sings it SO beautifully. This song is SO amazing on so many different levels. I could never get enough of it! I've loved since it first came out. To feel this for someone is to truly love them, unconditionally. Like the love of your life, or a mother to her children, it is both for me in my life. Love The Pretenders & Chrissie forever!!!

    ------ About the song I'll Stand By You performed by Pretenders

I'm not that familiar with the Pretenders, it's the second song I really know. Brass in Pocket is the other one, but this song makes me want to know more songs, sung by Chrissie Hynde. This song is beautiful, sung by such a beautiful voice. When I heard this for the first time, I couldn't stop listening it. I still can't. I love it..and it's such a tearjerker too.. :'(.

one of my favourite's of all times | Reviewer: Paul from Argentina

The Pretenders Rock! | Reviewer: Scott
    ------ About the song Middle Of The Road performed by Pretenders

This is on of the most kick-ass bands that was around during the 80's. This song in particular has one of the best lines ever recorded, with "when you own a big chunk of the bloody third world, the babies just come with the scenery." This band could rock with the best of 'em. Drugs took thier toll on some members, unfortunatly, but Chrissy keeps making great music. Go Pretenders!
