    The song's title came about after The Pretenders first-ever UK gig, when they were in the communal dressing room with The Strangeways, who they were supporting. Chrissie Hynde wanted to know whose trousers were sprawled over the back of a chair. One of The Strangeways Ada Wilson said: "I'll have them if there's any brass in the pockets." When Chrissie inquired what he meant by brass, it was explained to her that brass is a northern slang term for money. Chrissie fell in love with the expression and was inspired to write the song. https://bit.ly/3c0ig8z -- The Pretenders Performing Brass in Pocket live at The Isle of Wight Festival 2017: https://youtu.be/p3OBcgQXJ_k

    Brass in Pocket was The Pretenders first big success. This single hit number one on the UK charts forty years ago today, and remained there for two weeks.
