7. “Brass In Pocket”-[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]The Pretenders[/lastfm]
When the video for “Brass In Pocket” came out, we were obsessed with[lastfm link_type="artist_info"] Chrissie Hynde[/lastfm].
With her dark, tough girl good looks, Hynde’s constant beehive fluffing and her sexy exchanges with Peter Farndon, the bassist in the Pretenders, made the video really “special.”
Unfortunately for Farndon, he didn’t live past his own 30th birthday; Farndon died of a heroin overdose in a bathtub in 1983.
