Five on Friday Set 98

Posted: Friday, December 09, 2011 by Travis Cody in

Yeah, I dig bands fronted by rockin' chicks.  One of my favorites is The Pretenders featuring Chrissie Hynde.  And she could write, too.

Enjoy Set 98 and have a great weekend!

Brass in Pocket, written by Chrissie Hynde/James Honeyman-Scott, 1979

Back on the Chain Gang, written by Chrissie Hynde, 1982

My City was Gone, written by Chrissie Hynde, 1982

Don't Get Me Wrong, written by Chrissie Hynde, 1986

I'll Stand By You, written by Chrissie Hynde/Tom Kelly/Billy Steinberg, 1994

And don't forget...I've offered up another game of Five Degrees of Musical Progression for 16 December.  That's next Friday!  

This time around, I've suggested three possible avenues to take in building your Set.  Ready?

  1. This one is "easy".  Just come up with whatever strikes your fancy.  
  2. Define 2011 with a progression that reflects how your year went.
  3. Set the stage for what you expect in 2012.

For more details, check here.

If you'd like to join in, here are the guidelines:

1. Grab the banner, make your post title Five on Friday, and be sure to link back here.
2. Go to to make your Set of five songs. You may choose a particular theme to share with us, or post random tunes if that's your vibe for the day. You can simply post the Set, or you can add a little summary about what you are sharing.
2a. Don't feel restricted by the tracks listed on And don't be discouraged if the Embed code won't work. You're welcome to use any type of media to share your Sets.
3. Be sure to sign Mr Linky so everyone can visit your Set.
4. No tags, but feel free to invite your friends to play along if they need a post topic on a Friday.

Go forth and enjoy music!

  1. AH CHRISSIE! As you said, she rocked (and still does) plus she was sexy as all hell when she did.

    Love Chain of my all time favs.

    I remembered an anniversary this week.

    When I hear The Pretenders their music always takes me right back to the late 1970's when I was in the Air Force and living in New Jersey while stationed at McGuire Air Force Base. Doesn't matter which song it is - it's just automatically does that!

  1. Ah The pretenders,thanks for sharing them this week.
