WTLX Mix Tapes: Side 2, Song 5

Note: This series originally appeared on Facebook in a slightly different form, Aug-Sept 16.

In the mid-80s I opined that Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers might one day be on the short list for the best rock bands evah. I’m pretty sure that didn’t come to pass, but they had lots of quality stuff. Long After Dark doesn’t have my all-time favorite TP&tH songs on it, but it’s plenty solid and it wound up with two other songs on my mix tapes (“Straight Into Darkness” and “Deliver Me”). Here it’s its second single, which got to #21 in early 83.
