Hooked on Tom Petty!

It's Friday, the day before our country's 233rd Birthday. A celebration of Independence...I could have pick any number of patriotic topics to discuss for Julia's Hooked on Friday . But today (and everyday) I'm hooked on Tom Petty.
Well she was an American girl raised on promises
she couldn't help thinkin' that there was a little more to life somewhere else
after all it was a great big world with lots of places to run to
yeah, and if she have to die tryin' she had one little promise she was gonna keep

Oh yeah, all right take it easy baby make it last all night she was an American girl
it was kind of cold that night she stood alone on her balcony she could hear the cars roll by out on 441 like waves crashin' in the beach
and for one desperate moment there he crept back in her memory
God it's so painful something that's so close and still so far out of reach

oh yeah all right take it easy baby make it last all night
she was an American girl

Thanks Julia for hosting!
Thanks for visiting me!

What group are you hooked on?


  1. What a fun & creative post :-)

    For some reason, every summer I get hooked on Smash Mouth. Their music just says "summer" to me :-)

    Happy 4th of July!!

  2. What I like about Tom is the jangly guitar sound and his apparently effortless and unaffected voice. It probably took a look of work to make it seem effortless. I never cared for his girly hair though.

  3. Fun post! I love Tom Petty! And I love bring an "Americian Girl"
    Have a wonderful week end and a fabulous 4th!
