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-
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.
