Song of the Day: The Pretenders – “Don’t Get Me Wrong”

Happy birthday wishes go out to Chrissie Hynde, who turns 65 today. This day is a pretty big day in rock history as it also marks Buddy Holly’s birthday, Keith Moon’s death, and the live debut of Led Zeppelin, but we haven’t given Hynde or The Pretenders the spotlight those others have gotten, so today is her day. This irresistible single off the 1986 Get Close album was the second Pretenders single to reach the top 10 on the U.S. Billboard 100. The video is inspired by The Avengers – the 1960’s British TV show that is, not that of the Iron Man/Hulk/Thor/Captain America variety.
