5 from Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers

I like Tom Petty & and his heartbreakers – there’s nothing like a bit of southern rock. I have many albums by the man and his band, but here are five songs that I think you should listen to. And don’t forget Mike Campbell – great guitarist and songwriter.

Even the Losers – yes, even the losers get lucky sometimes. This is off a great album that will probably be next in my Classic album series. This is possibly my favourite of all of Tom P and Heartbreakers.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eNZxmq6aRos

Rebels   – Off Southern Accents (another great album). This is the first track and it rocks you into a great collection of songs. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OoV-awiHpuM

American Girl – off the debut album and the first really big hit for Tom Petty. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4WBWov6nd6E

I Won’t Back Down – yes, Tom is digging his heels in with this one. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nvlTJrNJ5lA

Don’t Come Around Here No More – a bit of Alice in Wonderland in this ‘out there’ video. It’s a vivid memory of my youth, so it gets the final position in this five. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h0JvF9vpqx8
