A Tom Petty Playlist

Recommended Posts

Hard to believe, but it's been one year since Tom Petty passed away at age 66 on October 2, 2017. :cry:

 

I just saw a playlist article, but I didn't bother to read it. I thought it might be more interesting to make one of our own with all of you. I'm interested in seeing what we come up with. :snax:

 

Here's the idea - each person picks a Petty song (one he did with the Heartbreakers, or with Mudcrutch, or with the Wilburys, or solo... that's up to you) and posts a video for it.

 

Rules? Nothing hard and fast so no one is going to get into trouble if they bend them.... you can post more than once, but I'd prefer if everyone would please post one video at a time, and then give others a chance to respond and post a video of their own selection before you post again.

 

Of course general discussions about Tom Petty, his music, his bands, and his career are also welcome.

 

 

 

I'm going to start the playlist off with a funky little number he did with the Heartbreakers off of Hard Promises...

The Waiting is a great song! :philthumb:

 

It's about as Byrds-influenced as you could possibly get... :lol: And yet, it still sounds like Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers.

"Learning To Fly" my favorite TP video and cinematography. I just wish there was an HD version available to post.

Way back when, the Electric Guitar Forum did coverfest contests. I put this one together for one of those.

While "The Waiting" is probably my favorite TP song this gets an honorable mention.

It's not HD, but it's worth a post anyway IMO...
