‘Don’t Get Me Wrong’ by the Pretenders – Classic Hit or Miss

“Don’t Get Me Wrong” is a song released by the pop-rock group The Pretenders. It was the first single taken from the group’s 1986 album, Get Close. It can also be found on the band’s The Singles album, released in 1987.In the US, “Don’t Get Me Wrong” became the group’s second Top 10 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, peaking at #10. . “Don’t Get Me Wrong” also spent three weeks atop the Billboard Album Rock Tracks chart in November 1986. In the UK, the song also peaked at #10 in the UK Singles Chart.

This song was more commercial than the band’s usual sound, with a jangly guitar sound and a pop melody. However, the lyrics were still as biting as their earlier material.

The music video for the song is a clear tribute to the British 1960s TV spy series The Avengers, with Chrissie Hynde playing Emma Peel in search of John Steed (Patrick Macnee appears in the original series’ footage, with Hynde superimposed).
