Tom Petty: Runnin’ Down a Dream

I listened to a bunch of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers in high school and college, but the soundtrack to my freshman year of college was Petty’s debut solo album, Full Moon Fever. I’d listen to the cd from top to bottom, only skipping over the ridiculous last track, Zombie Zoo. The track I’m highlighting today, Running Down A Dream, starts with a killer guitar riff that propels the song all the way across the finish line some four and a half minutes later. RIP, Tom Petty.
