Song of the Day: Tom Petty – “Free Fallin'”

There are so many songs you could choose in tribute to Tom Petty — his music was part of the soundtrack to so many lives. For me, I just picked the first song that comes to mind when I think of him, which is “Free Fallin'”. Is it my favorite by Petty? I don’t even know, there’s so many… but it’s the images of this video that fill my head first. The song and the video put together turned it into something that hit home for teenagers such as myself watching this on MTV back in the day. The song was the first completed for Petty’s Full Moon Fever album and was written and recorded in just two days by Petty and Jeff Lynne. It might have taken just two days to finish, but it’ll live on for many lifetimes.
