Love Song Sunday: I'll Stand By You

I am sharing a very classic song this Sunday. Mostly because I have always, always loved this song for as long as I can remember. I don't know how old I was when I first heard it, but I remember that it struck something visceral in me. I recognized its beauty, its powerful honesty.

I just love the Pretenders. And I absolutely love Chrissie Hynde. She's a pioneer of woman in rock. She's absolutely effervescent and her music is ever relevant.

Plus? I heard this song twice (TWICE!) on the radio this morning driving home. I think that was a sign I needed to share it today.

Enjoy:

I kind of needed to read this. Because this move? Is trying my marriage. But I think of this song and remember that I'll never desert him.

But if he doesn't stop bitching about how he forgot to pack his own damn socks, I may read a book instead of talk to him. That counts as standing by him, right?

chrissie is THE woman. i actually got to see the pretenders with my mom a few years ago and it was amazing. ALMOST as amazing as the time i saw patti smith (also with my mom) and had to muster up all the cool i had (which isn't much) to not melt into a puddle of adoring uber-fan slop in the presence of my idol. *sigh*
