58. Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers - American Girl

Found on: Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers (1977)

Do you think Mike Campbell ever gets tired of playing that ringing guitar riff? Me neither. Tom and his Heartbreakers obviously had a very clear vision from the beginning, considering how assured American Girl sounds. All of the qualities that made them beloved are already there: harmony, rhythm, lyrics, energy, everything.
