Day Three of the Top 2000 Countdown - Learning to Fly

Welcome to the third day of the Top 2000 countdown!  Today we are counting down the best songs of all time, from #1181 - 1812.

Today I picked #1278 - Learning to Fly by Tom Petty.  

Tom was my rock and roll idol in my late teens.  I had a big poster of him in on the wall of my first apartment. He was wearing that red shirt from the cover of the Damn The Torpedos album. I saw him at the (now defunct) St Paul Auditorium back in the early 80's, and it was amazing.  I still can't believe he's gone.

Here's my tribute to Learning to Fly...

and here's Tom singing it...

The Top 2000 Countdown party is hosted by my friend Marit Barentsen on her blog.  If you want to find out more about the Top 2000 Party, click here:  All About the Top 2000 Blog Party

Thanks for visiting and I will see you tomorrow for day four!
