Saturday video break: Stop Your Sobbing

Song #57 on the Popdose Top 100 Covers list is “Stop Your Sobbing”, originally by The Kinks and covered by The Pretenders. Here’s the original:

Definitely an early 60s song, very different in structure and sound than what I at least am used to hearing from the Kinks on the radio. Here’s the cover, which as the Popdose writup notes came from Chrissy Hynde’s affair with Ray Davies:

When I started out on this post, I thought it was going to be about a song I’d not heard before, but instead it was a song whose name I’d not known before now. That’s been one of the nice things about doing this series, I’ve finally learned the names of some songs I’d always known. Gotta love commercial radio. Anyway, it’s the same basic song but definitely improved. And now I know what it’s called. Awesome. What do you think?
