The Pretenders - Talk Of The Town


On this date in 1980, The Pretenders released their fourth single, "Talk Of The Town". It was backed by "Cuban Slide". The A side appeared on their second album, Pretenders II. The B side was a non-LP track (though it appeared on the North America-only EP, Extended Play, released in 1981, along with "Talk Of The Town"). The single reached the #8 spot on the U.K. singles chart. The London punk/new wave band, fronted by Ohio-raised Chrissie Hynde, is still in existence.
