Oh how I am a sucker for the soft country yet bluesy tones in Gainesville, Florida’s Tom Petty’s rock and roll voice.
Picture this … almost 5 years ago, warm sunny day, speeding up the motorway in a car… a guys car. Speeding towards the destination of your first date. Now you and this guy share a friend, said friend is messaging you confidence building texts and tells you to tell Jonathan that he is free falling.
‘Umm.. Gary is free fallling?’
Then came the excitement of Jonathan telling me all about his favorite music, followed by The Best Of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers being put on full volume. I am in love … not with Jonathan (not yet anyway) but with the songs and melodies of Tom Petty and his band. They’re still in my top ten favorites today!
So for this throw back Thursday, enjoy a classic!
