REVIEWS

super
*****
Schöner (Weihnachten) Song aus Dezember 1983 war es vor Chrissie Hynde und Ihrer Freunde Hit 6 in Reihe in Holland (5 Wochen - Rang 8)....... Es war erste single nach dem Tod von Peter Farndon, "member of the band" am 14 April 1983...
******
Single 1983. Oh ich weiss noch wie diese Single herauskam, ich war sofort hingerissen und spielte sie am Radio so oft wie möglich. Noch heute schmelze ich dahin, wenn ich den Song höre. Hat so nichts mit abgeschmackter Weihnachtsmusik zu tun, sondern ist einfach eine wunderschöne winterliche Ballade. Thank you, Chrissie Hynde.
******
Only 3 reviews???

This is one of the most beautiful Christmas-ballads.
******
My favourite Christmas song.
*****
Wunderschöne Nummer (mit oder ohne Xmas). # 15 in UK Ende 1983.
***
finde ich gar nicht so toll wie der rest hier
*****
Wunderbar!
******
wunderbarer Song; "I'll Stand By You" ist aber noch 'ne Spur besser...

tolle stimme...

Mega schöner Xmas- Song
*****
Auf gewohnt hohem Niveau, # 15 in den britischen Charts im Dezember 1983.
*****
schöner Titel
*****
Eine Klasse Nummer
****
Ein solider Schmachtfetzen für die Weihnachtszeit...
*****
▒ Mooie kerstklassieker van: "The Pretenders", uit eind 1983 !!! Nog steeds voor mij 5 sterren waard !!! Deed het ook netjes (voor kerstplaat) in de Hollandse hitlijsten ☺!!!

@26-12-2015: ▒ (NL Top 40: 5 wk / # 8) ☺!!!

goldig, für mich die beste pretenders-single
***
wo da das highlight sein soll?? in der adventzeit nett, ansonst ein sehr austauschbares, unauffälliges liedlein..
*****
Sehr schöner Weihnachts Song.
***
geht so
******
Super!
****
Nein, wirklich nicht unbedingt ein Highlight von "Learning
To Crawl", aber ein netter, friedlicher Abschluss des Albums.

4 +
***
Für die Pretenders recht schwach. Hat einfach keinen Biss.
*****
Sehr schön
****
Mooie kerstplaat van Chrissie Hynde en haar Pretenders uit het jaar 1983.
***
Als het geen kerstplaat had geweest had de plaat meer sterren van mij gekregen.
***
langweiliges Weihnachtslied aus 1983, hat keinen Pepp – 3*…
*****
prachtige ballad van The Pretenders, ik heb bij dit nummer nooit echt het idee gehad dat ik naar een kerstplaat zit te luisteren (afgezien van de zin ".....it must be Christmas time") dus ik ga WEL voor 5 sterren
*****
Mooie kerstsingel van The Pretenders uit 1983.
*****
Bald gehts wieder los :)
***
Tolerable.
*****
... wirklich sehr schön ...
***
ganz nett aber langweilig
****
mooie plaat
*****
Mooie plaat, in tegenstelling tot sommige "elk jaar weer met Kerst op de radio veel gedraaide plaatjes" hoor ik deze ballade ieder jaar graag weer langskomen in december.
*****
Zonder twijfel één van de leukste kerstplaatjes.
******
Zeer goed.
****
naja, überwältigt bin ich jetzt auch nicht gerade, aber anhören kann man sich's schon - 3.75*
***
Peaked at #30 in Australia, 1983.
****
Ganz schön, aber es gibt doch wahrhaftig viel schönere X-mas Songs! Mir würden jetzt bestimmt spontan 30 bessere einfallen!
*****
...wunderschöner Song - so richtig gemütlich und kuschelig - auch nach Weihnachten ein Hörgenuss...
******
Einfach großartig.
*****
Soms zijn slaapverwekkende platen toch ook wel erg mooi. Dit is daar een prachtig voorbeeld van.
***
mwah, vind dit niet veel bijzonders
****
Während die Amerikaner sich an "Middle of the Road" ergötzten, wurde in UK und NL mit diesem Hit Weihnachten gefeiert.
****

Doch, dieser Song ist ganz schön.
**
One of their more boring releases and certainly isn't an excitable Christmas song. Not an irritating listen, just not one of their better ones. 2.5*
#15 peak UK, 1983.
