My theme for this year's a-z challenge is off the top of my head-the first musical group to pop into my head...not necessarily my favorite, just the first to show itself.
In the eighties, from my perch in front of MTV, I was not much of a Pretenders fan. I can only imagine what fabulous video I was impatiently waiting for while I suffered though Brass in Pocket, or worse still, Back on the Chain Gang. I figured I did not like The Pretenders, but perhaps it was more that I had just grown tired of those two overplayed songs.
In trying to decide which video to post, I played Back on the Chain Gang (prepared to be instantly turned off). Not only did I appreciate the song, but my daughter started humming along. She has no idea why she knows the song. My husband shouted in that his favorite is The Wait, but I am not familiar with much beyond their greatest hits (which I do actually enjoy).
I am sorry Pretenders, I will put one of your cd's in the car today!
