Top Ten Favorite Tom Petty Songs

As most of you already know, Tom Petty passed away yesterday unexpectedly at the age of 66. Like many, I’ve been listening to Tom Petty since I was a child and he’s been a favorite music artist throughout my life. I can remember countless times as a child riding in the car listening to Tom Petty on the radio and as I grew older and started going out with friends on the weekend, you always heard Tom Petty tunes. He was pretty much a staple and some of my very first songs I learned on my acoustic guitar were Tom Petty tunes.

We lost so many talented and amazing artists this year. I thought I’d post my top ten favorite Tom Petty songs to celebrate his life in music. Maybe some of these are songs that you enjoy as well.

Some of these music videos are the greatest of all time and every one of them is worth watching. It was hard to pick just ten, but these are some of my favorite jams.

  1. I feel you! It was a very sad day indeed 😦 Bowie hit me the hardest recently, because I was a life long fan of his work but Tom Petty’s music has always bern there as well.

    Into the great wide open, learning to fly, Wildflowers, mary jane’s last dance, free fallin.. probably my favourites but I love listening to all of his other songs as well!

  2. Great post, Jenn 🙂 I wasn’t a huge fan, but his music was always a part of my life in one way or another. My hubby is a huge fan and has really taken the news badly. The loss of any great talent, which there is no denying Petty was is a shattering loss to the world. 😦 Thanks for sharing your favorites…Free Fallin’ will always be the song I think of when I think of him ❤
