aspettando Tom Petty

young tom pettySono passati circa 21 anni da quando io e mio fratello, subito dopo aver visto Il silenzio degli innocenti, abbiamo comprato il Greatest Hits di Tom Petty & The Heartbrakers. Io avevo 15 anni, lui 12 e a mala pena sapevamo chi fosse quel capellone biondo. Il cd però l’abbiamo consumato.

Venerdì sera, finalmente, vedrò Tom Petty dal vivo e (coincidenza!) sta chiudendo tutte le date proprio con quello stesso pezzo.

Mi sto preparando all’evento canticchiando la scaletta del tour. Eccola in versione studio e, per chi preferisce, anche in versione live.

“… well she was an American girl
raised on promises
She couldn’t help thinking that there
was a little more to life
somewhere else…”

ON AIR: American Girl (Tom Petty & The Heartbrakers)
