Power pop heroes PRETENDERS fronted by the utterly charismatic
Chrissie Hynde released their tremendously infectious poppy debut
single STOP YOUR SOBBING in 1979, amidst the punk explosion
in the UK.
It was a cover. The original was written by kink Ray Davies about
a crying girlfriend he broke up with. It was released as a single in
1964 only in… South-Africa!
Guess what? Ray Davies & Chrissie Hynde had a relationship and
a child. No sobbing for them, until they split up sometime later.
