VIDEO OF THE WEEK: FOO FIGHTERS – THE PRETENDER

February 2, 2021

This week we are taking a look back at Foo Fighters track “The Pretender”. It was the first single from their 2007 album Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace and one of their most successful songs; peaking at number 37 on the US Billboard Hot 100.

Did you know –

– That the song originally had the working title “Silver Heart”

– The Sesame Street song “One of These Things Is Not Like the Others” may have subconsciously influenced the song.

– The song is written in the key of A minor and showcases the shifting dynamics which Dave Grohl wanted to employ on Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace
