The Pretenders Christmas Songs & Music

Whoever said punk rock wasn't perfect for Christmas music? In 1987, The Pretenders proved them wrong with a beautiful cover of one of the world's most popular holiday songs.

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas- 1987

The Pretenders do a great job of this song made famous by Judy Garland back in 1944. The accompaniment is sparse and simple, with Chrissie Hynde's emotive vocals capturing the melancholy feel of the original. The song featured on the 1987 compilation album A Very Special Christmas alongside artists such as The Eurythmics, John Cougar Mellancamp and Bryan Adams.
