Friday Nineties – Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers – Into the Great Wide Open

Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers Into The Great Wide Open

It’s ladies’ choice this week and I always choose Tom. One of my longest  one-sided relationships ever is with Tom Petty. Every road trip I have taken since I left home, he has gone on with me. They are so not a studio band and I will see them in a small venue before they stop touring. I figure I have time, the future is wide open.

ETA: In an incredibly odd twist, my other long-standing one-sided relationship, Johnny Depp, stars in this video. This is what I get for not watching videos, even the ones I embed myself. I’m really kinda flipped out over this. So for serious, watch the video, don’t just click play and listen while you do stuff in other tabs. Like me.

Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers – Into the Great Wide Open

Into The Great Wide Open lyrics

Eddie waited til' he finished high school
He went to Hollywood, got a tattoo
He met a girl out there with a tattoo too
The future was wide open

They moved into a place they both could afford
He found a night club he could work at the door
She had a guitar and she taught him some chords
The sky was the limit

Into the great wide open
Under them skies of blue
Out in the great wide open
A rebel without a clue

The papers said Ed always played from the heart
He got an agent and a roadie named Bart
They made a record and it went in the chart
The sky was the limit

His leather jacket had chains that would jingle
They both met movie stars, partied and mingled
Their A&R man said "I don't hear a single"
The future was wide open

Into the great wide open
Under them skies of blue
Out in the great wide open
A rebel without a clue

    I refuse to speculate anymore why Johnny Depp rides the bitch seat in this video. You can’t go wrong with Tom Petty though.

    You could always count on Tom Petty for pretty awesome videos. The one for Don’t Come Around Here No More always stuck with me.

    The fact that this video has a Wikipedia entry seems to sum up why Wikipedia should not be trusted.

    My left elbow has a wiki entry. But so does constructivism. What’s your point?
