Brass in Pocket” (also known as “Brass in Pocket (I’m Special)”) is a single by The Pretenders. In the accompanying music video for the single, Hynde portrays a waitress working in a greasy spoon who encounters a sleepy customer. She suddenly sees three men (her band members) approaching in a car outside. Hynde attempts to look elegant upon their entrance and flirts with one of the men (Pete Farndon) after they have been seated. Pete does not respond to her overtures. Suddenly, three seductively dressed women (the men’s girlfriends) enter the greasy spoon, sit at the men’s table and begin to kiss their boyfriends. Farndon’s girlfriend is not impressed when he appears to respond to Chrissie’s flirting. Suddenly, the couples decide to leave the café without eating. Hynde is saddened and watches them outside leaving in their car.”
