Talk Of The Town single
(Pretenders II)
C. Hynde
Eight weeks on the charts, #8 position was the highest it went. Talk Of The Town was the band's fourth single. LB's personal fave Pretenders song. 

Tattooed Love Boys
(Pretenders)
C. Hynde
Alice Cooper's favourite Pretenders song! 

Tequila
(Last Of The Independents)
C. Hynde
Another teaser - this song was not only one of the first songs Chrissie and Pete played together, but also was recorded as a demo by the original lineup. Previous to the snippet on Last Of The Independents, the only other place you could hear the song was on a bootleg from around 1979 entitled One Night Stand. This acoustic, live version was released as a bonus track on the limited edition 2000 Miles Christmas CD single (with Christmas card!) in 1995. 

The Adultress
(Pretenders II)
C. Hynde
The misspelled song title. We've only ever seen it spelled "correctly" as "The Adulteress" on the Two-On-One cassette. 

The English Roses
(Pretenders II)
C. Hynde
What a beautiful song! It's poetry, it's charming, it's heartbreaking. Those of us who love this song really love it. If you've never heard it, sample it here, then get thee to a record shop! 

The Homecoming
(G.I. Jane soundtrack)
C. Hynde
"The track that you're hearing in the soundtrack," says Chrissie, "is directly recorded live and unproduced."

The Isle Of View
(The Isle Of View)
C. Hynde
An instrumental written by Chrissie before the Pretenders were formed. 

The Losing single
(Loose Screw)
C. Hynde/A. Seymour

The Phone Call
(Pretenders)
C. Hynde 

The Wait
(Pretenders)
C. Hynde/P. Farndon 

Thin Line Between Love And Hate single
(Learning To Crawl)
Rich & Rob Poindexter/J. Members
Chrissie has said that she could never understand why so many people have told her that Thin Line is their favourite song, but no one bought it... the highest it reached was #49 and was only able to stay on the charts for 3 weeks. 

Thumbelina
(Learning To Crawl)
C. Hynde 

Time single
(Loose Screw)
C. Hynde/A. Seymour

Time The Avenger
(Learning To Crawl)
C. Hynde 

Tradition Of Love single
(Get Close)
C. Hynde
