Coloring Club Plus — 2/26/19

per wikipedia:  Last of the Independents is the sixth album by rock group The Pretenders, released in 1994. For this album, the band is officially credited as being Chrissie Hynde (vocals, guitar), Adam Seymour (guitar), Andy Hobson (bass) and Martin Chambers (drums). However, this line-up only plays together on one track (“All My Dreams”); the rest of the album is performed by Hynde and Seymour in conjunction with a rotating series of musicians on bass and drums.

This album is one stellar song after another. I chose “Rebel Rock Me” because it really shows off Chrissie Hynde’s voice and Adam Seymour’s guitar playing.

Rebel Rock Me

I’m as solid as a rock
Throw me at the powers that be
I’m as solid as a rock
Throw me at the powers that be
I’m as user friendly as a lead-filled glove
Rebel rock me

Hey!

I’ve got money in the bank
Come with me and you can have it for free
I’ve got money earning interest in the bank
Come with me and you can have it for free
I’ve got assets big as holes up in the sky
Rebel rock me

Hey!

I’m as heavy as a crowd in east l.a.
Fling me at the oppressor and flee

I’m as heavy as a crowd in east l.a.
Fling me at the oppressor and flee

I’m a seething burning moving mass of love
Rebel rock me

Hey!

Songwriters: Christine Hynde

  1. I like the mushroom… I thought you were going to have an Allman Brothers song after seeing that.
    I never heard that song before. I like the reverb they have on it.

  2. Very cool. I have been in GR until about an hour ago. Went over to check on son and wife’s cats (my fur grandbabies) and ended up staying overnight as it was bad driving all the way over. Then this morning, even at 17 degrees, it was raining and freezing as it hit the windshield. Talk about a harrowing drive home!

  3. Have you ever heard of windshield wipers melting on a windshield?? On the drive I had defrost heat on max and wipers on max, just to keep freezing rain (how can it even rain at 17F???) from blocking my vision and now it is messed up with black streaks. ::smh:: Please Spring soon.
