    Favorite Tom Petty songs?

    I've been on a Tom Petty kick lately. My top 3 are:

    1. Learning to fly. While this is a popular song, it probably isn't his most popular, but I love this tune. I could listen to it every day for the rest of my life and not get sick of it
    2. Runnin' down a dream
    3. Last dance with Mary Jane. I was tempted to put American Girl here, but I cant leave last dance off my top 3 list

    Re: Favorite Tom Petty songs?

    10, off the top of my head, without giving much thought:

    The Waiting
    Rebels
    Honey Bee (especially the version from SNL featuring Dave Grohl on drums)
    Free Fallin'
    Keeping Me Alive
    American Girl
    Walls
    Even The Losers
    Change of Heart
    Straight Into Darkness

    I'll stand by this list any day


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Re: Favorite Tom Petty songs?

    All of them. There was a pretty solid cover band at Okoboji last year. I didn't know it when we got to Captains but it was a good night, I think.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Re: Favorite Tom Petty songs?

    "Quit Jamming Me" for whatever reason never gets play time, but it is a great song and how I feel with everyone wanting to FacebookMySpaceLinkedINPintrestTwitter......

    Pandora a Tom Petty station and you will get Freaking insane live versions of Learning to Fly, Freefalling, and of course Breakdown. "You guys are going to put me out of a job". Still great after all these years.
    Netflix the Damn the Torpedoes great albums documentary and you will gain appreciation for the entire band.

    After all that......Learning to Fly is my favorite. "Don't do me like that" instantly puts me on a bus in 7th grade.
    I saw Tom Petty at Hiltion colliseum.....one of my least favorite songs--don't come around here no more--actually really rocked live.

    Re: Favorite Tom Petty songs?

    Tom Petty fan here. Simple music, I didn't read the thread because I'm sure there is some music snot above blasting him.

    The Running Down a Dream documentary is good, along with his book Conversations with Tom Petty.

    A few of my favorite songs of him and the Heartbreakers are:
    Learning to Fly
    Crawling back to you
    Wildflowers
    Don't come around here no more
    American Girl
    Into the great wide open
    The Last DJ
