Today's ear X-tacy features a classic track or deep-cut from the Alternative era every weekday at 10:10.
In honor of her 72nd birthday, we’re featuring “Kid," a song written by Hynde that appears on the Pretenders 1979 self-titled debut album. The song saw the band shifting away from punk to a more pop sound.
Speaking about the lyrics to to the song Hynde stated, "It's about a prostitute whose son finds out what she does for a living and this is her having a conversation with him. Not all songs are autobiographical."
