Music for Mondays: I Won’t Back Down by Tom Petty


So this week’s Music for Monday does seem like a bit of a no brainer in that I’ve picked Tom Petty, who – sadly – died last week. Tom Petty is one of those artists that I feel like has been around forever and whose songs I seem to know all the words for, though I don’t own all his albums. Even if it’s a song you don’t know, you do instantly know it’s Petty as soon as you hear the first few bars. His music was distinctive, as was his voice.

There were a number of songs I almost picked for today but I ended up with I Won’t Back Down because it’s the one that first popped into my head when I heard the news of his death. And it’s the song that has been running round my head every since. Despite the reasons for my picking it I hope you enjoy…

What did you think – are you a Petty fan or is this a first for you? What song is on repeat for you at the moment – let me know, I’m always looking out for something new to listen to.

  1. I love it! I’m sure I’ve heard him over the years, having raised three boys and a girl who loves music. But I seldom remember the performers’ names…unless they are The Beatles, U-2, etc.

    Thanks for sharing.
