The Poetry of Chrissie Hynde


I’d like to celebrate national poetry month and keep the theme of this blog going by featuring some of my favorite lyrics from pop songs in 1984. The following lyrics are courtesy of Ms. Chrissie Hynde from The Pretenders’ My City Was Gone.

I went back to Ohio

But my pretty countryside

Had been paved down the middle

By a government that had no pride

The farms of Ohio

had been replaced by shopping malls

And Muzak filled the air

From Seneca to Cuyahoga Falls
