b side: "Tonight She Comes"
Elektra Records 7-69589 1985
Huh, well I'll be damned... "Tonight She Comes" is actually the a-side since this was released for their Greatest Hits album. Oh well. Ah yes, it's all coming back to me now.

a side: "Kid (stereo)"
b side: "Kid (mono)"

Definitely my favorite Pretenders single. Those James Honeyman-Scott riffs are where it's at. Happy to play that one twice.

Music behind the DJ: "Gomez" by Vic Mizzy.
