Tom Petty – Free Fallin’ (1989)

Classic single from Tom Petty’s “Full Moon Fever” LP released in 1989.

Co-written by Jeff Lynne of the Electric Light Orchestra.

For me, this is a song where the official video seems to subtract value. Before I had seen it, I would not have pictured a series of LA landscapes with Mr Petty strolling around a Mall with his guitar. I presume (and hope) there is irony at work here!

Just a beautiful riff that never stops .. I play it as F major, F major sus 4, F major, C major sus 4 … all the way through!

The official video and then a quite stunning live version from the halftime show at Superbowl 2008 …!
