First introduced to me by SELENA QUINTANILLA with drifferent title ! It was the early 90s I'm not much into the spanish music but the music was a heart catcher ! Now whenever is played in the radio rock stations it brings me back to life the music is just fascinating it steals my heart!

She absolutely is that. This song defined my life in the 80's. Hearing the intro makes my heart stop for a second, like unexpectedly seeing an old lover.

I love this song. I was in high school when it came out and it made me a Pretender's fan; I bought every one of their albums. Chrissie Hynde is essence of cool.

What a nice surprise on my Chris McVie (Chrissy Perfect) station. I always liked this group and this song, although they were never one of my central interests.

Love you, Lori!!!!. Miss you more than words can say.

Great song... even if you've never been on a chain gang before.

This song is appreciated even by us who are not Pretenders fans.

"...like a pigeon from hell!" that's what I'm talkin' bout! Yes, she has remarkable skills of enunciation compared to a mush-mouth like Stevie Nicks.

It is no wonder Selena (sort of) covered this song. The original is still my favorite!

Yeah, this is a nice little piece of songwriting right here.
