“Brass In Pocket” by The Pretenders (1980)

An appropriate title for such a brassy song.

Chrissie Hynde doesn’t fuck around. She’s not going to bat her eyelashes and hope that you notice. She’s going to MAKE you notice, and there’s no way you won’t.

“Brass In Pocket” put Chrissie and her band on the map and established her as a force to be reckoned with; a force that’s still something to contend with almost forty years later.
