Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – “Up The Neck” by Pretenders

On the surface, today’s Song Of The Day by Eric Berman exudes pure sexuality in its imagery. Listen a little closer and the lyrics tell a much different story…”Lust turns to anger, a kiss to a slug…”

Chrissie Hynde was just amazing during this era and The Pretenders’ self-titled debut album remains a solid 5-star classic to this day. Here is the original line up of the band caught live in Paris from 1980 featuring the essential guitar work of James Honeyman-Scott.
