Song of the Day: Don’t Get Me Wrong (Cover) – Sophia Marshall

SOPHIA MARSHALL’s busy year continues with her latest release, ‘Smells Like Rubber’, a two-track homage to Chrissie Hynde, The Pretenders, living and working in a man’s world, and making no apologies for any of it.

‘Smells Like Rubber’ – who knows where that came from – but whatever the titular inspiration, it’s the songs that matter, and ‘Smells Like Rubber’, contains two classics from The Pretenders’ canon: ‘Don’t Get Me Wrong’ and ‘I Go To Sleep’ (the latter written by Ray Davies, but never recorded by The Kinks), both originally released in the ‘80s, and both utterly timeless.

‘Don’t Get Me Wrong’ make it to today’s Song of the Day spot for its spine tinglingly feather-light and rootsy treatment on a classic that became a top ten hit in the US and UK back in 1986.

Any The Pretenders fans will find this version a delight…go ahead and have a listen…and if you like what you hear, be sure to check out Sophia’s  Kasabian inspired ‘lin-dah’ EP, released last month –  click here.
