Three songs short of five stars!
on March 5, 2003
I finally received The Pretenders Greatest Hits as a gift a month ago. I absolutely love this collection of tunes, but there exists a puzzle in my mind concerning track choices.
I think "I've Got You Babe" should have been left off. It got onto the "Singles" collection, so I wish it - as well as a couple others - had been kept off the "Greatest Hits". Some much better choices would have been some of Hynde's own compositions like "Show Me", or "My Baby", or perhaps "Never Do That" from the much-over-looked "Packed" album. If there were to be covers included on this album (CD), I think the band's rendition of 10CC's "I'm Not In Love", from the "Indecent Proposal" sound track, would have been a much better choice.
But, all in all, an excellent collection from one of my all-time favorite bands and singer/songwriter.
