Pretenders: "Middle of the Road" (1983)

A simply marvellous pop song, written by Pretenders frontwoman Chrissie Hynde. "There is a sensual, raw quality in her voice that recalls great girl singers like Ronnie Spector as well as a sardonic turn of lyrical phrase which elevates her above the plastic pop standard." (Max Bell, The Times, 17 January 1984)
