Happy birthday to Tom Petty, 61 years old today! One of the most prolific rock acts of the last 35 years, Petty has mostly been backed by his incredible band The Heartbreakers, which is also the case here. "Don't Come Around Here No More" was the first single to be lifted from the 1985 album Southern Accents. It's a co-write between Petty and Dave Stewart of Eurythmics, a guy who's been getting a lot more bad lip than he deserves. Say what you will about Stewart, but he's the perfect sidekick. The video to "Don't Come Around Here No More" is also a classic with its "Alice in Wonderland" imagery.
