The Pretender (Jackson Browne song). The Pretender" is a song written and performed by American rock performer Jackson Browne and featured on his 1976 album The Pretender. The Pretender" was composed, according to Browne, in a number of locations; in Los Angeles, within a rented store-front in North Hollywood, and in a "tacky" hotel in Hawaii. Browne is quoted to have claimed that the song was almost complete before he had discovered the defining opening piano-riff.

Album · 1976 · 8 Songs. The Pretender was another step in Jackson Browne’s transition from singer/songwriter to rocker. From the opening lines of The Fuse -his observation on the movement of time and the limits of life itself-on out, it’s clear that his wife’s suicide haunts this record. Browne worries for his son ( The Only Child") and wonders how he himself will soldier forth ( The Pretender ). In the end, his poetic lines beautify the truth, while the full band gives him a hopeful edge. The Pretender is a world of consequence-a heavy but deeply rewarding listen. The Pretender Jackson Browne.
