FlinterFile: Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers- Here Comes My Girl


This song is a little less famous than Refugee.Strangely enough, both were written in the same week. Mike Campbell, the guitar player of the Heartbreakers, recorded both songs as demos. The chorus was already made, but the problem was the verse: how to sing it? After trying several things, Tom Petty came up with the half singing half talking way, which was the way it was done. It would be a number 59 hit in the US in 1979. Enjoy
