I've been enjoying Tom Petty's music for most of my life. I decided, upon learning of his death, to share my favorite Petty songs with you. It took a few days to decide which ones. There's so much great stuff!  "Breakdown," "Even the Losers," "You Got Lucky," "Runnin' Down a Dream," "Mary Jane's Last Dance," "I Won't Back Down," and the list goes on. It took 5 days to distill down to my "top 5."

#5 "Louisiana Rain." I purchased Tom's "Damn the Torpedoes" album shortly after moving to the Bayou State...

#4 "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around."

Tom & the Heartbreakers had completed a recording of this song when mutual producer Jimmy Iovine persuaded Stevie Nicks to include it as a duet on her debut solo album, "Bella Donna."

#3 "The Waiting."

#2 "Don't Come Around Here No More."

 

#1 is a tie...

I spent 5 days trying to narrow it down to 5 songs. As you can see, I couldn't.
