I watched the movie version of “The Avengers” a couple of weekends ago. What dreck that was. I wanted it to be really groovy, what with Ralph Fiennes and Uma Thurman on board, but no. The dialogue was stilted. There was absolutely zero chemistry between the leads. Rotten to the core.
The Averngers original television series had such style and, lord, was it sexy. Looking back, I realize now I had a huge crush on Emma Peel as played by Diana Rigg. Wow! She was some hot, hard-to-handle stuff.
I bring all that up because I was reminded of one of my favorite lines from a song this morning.
And when I went to pull the video for Feel Good Friday fun, lo and behold, I had forgotten the original video had an Avengers type of theme.
So, today, I present to you Chrissie Hynde and The Pretenders with “Don’t Get Me Wrong.”
Oh, and that favorite line. It’s this one –
“Don’t get me wrong
If I split like light refracted
I’m only off to wander
Across a moonlit mile”
