The Pretenders – 2000 Miles (UK 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 21st December 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1983

“2000 Miles” is a song by English-American rock band The Pretenders that was released in 1983 as the preceding single to their 1984 album, Learning to Crawl. It was most popular in the UK, where it peaked at No. 15 on the UK Singles Chart in December 1983. In the US, it was released as the B-side of both the 7-inch single and 12-inch single remix of the band’s hit, “Middle of the Road”.

Considered a Christmas song, it has been released on various Christmas compilation albums. While most people believe the title to refer to the distance between two long-distance lovers who miss each other over the holidays, it is actually meant to be for James Honeyman-Scott, the group’s original guitar player, who died the year before the song was released.

The official video features Hynde dressed as a member of the Salvation Army in a snowy location.
