Out & About - Tom Petty songs - which songs and where you heard them!

Recommended Posts

Gainesville was played last night on Newstalk 106fm in Ireland on the Tom Dunne music show, was mentioned that it was left off from a ''dark album'' that he couldn't remember the name of (Echo) because it didn't fit the tone of the album and that it was an example of how confident Tom was in his song writing that he could decide to leave such a great song off the album. Was also mentioned that Gainesville was from American Treasure but not on the forthcoming Greatest Hits release. :)  

The song itself is actually growing on me and sounded great on the radio!

This is trippy..... So I have recently completed writing a book and I'm in the process of trying to figure out how to get to the next step. Writing a query letter is part of that. As I finish reading a blog, at the bottom of the post is a link to a song, and you guessed it.... Tom Petty; Breakdown....   💗

Randomly came across "running down a dream" on the radio yesterday.  Was nice to hear it on the radio and I actually had to go back to it as I was doing my quick run through the pre-sets and it took me a second to realize what I had almost missed.  😄

I Won't Back Down on my way to catch the train into work yesterday on Classic Hits 4FM in Ireland and also Tweeter & The Monkey Man on my way home from work last week on a local Irish language radio station in Dublin. I'm also hearing a lot of Roy Orbison lead vocal songs from the Travelling Wilbury's being played on the radio recently! 😀

You Got Lucky on Radio Nova in Dublin Ireland yesterday during my lunch break in a cafe having a mint tea! 😀 A VERY well produced song for the radio, still sounds as fresh as a daisy, love the studio production on that one!

I've been off on vacation and never got into checking forums on my phone, but my kids went away to France for a couple of weeks to stay with friends of the family - the lucky dogs got to go to Euro Disney in Paris and were kind enough to let me know they heard Tom Petty at the Rock n Roll Roller coaster!  😎 💘 yeah I was jealous! :)

I'm a late arrival to the greatness that is The Sopranos series starring James Gandolfini. I'm working my way through the boxset. Heard a snippet of Free Fallin' about two thirds way through the final episode of Season 2! 😀

 I think it could be the only show where every new season tops the previous one. Hopefully you'll share what you make of the whole thing when it's over. And yes, the Tom Petty song was quite the surprise at that moment.

cheers
