"I Won't Back Down" on Music Monday
Today marks Tom Petty's first appearance on The Sheepdog's Music Mondays. He has been recording great music since the late '70s. Petty's Full Moon Fever album of 1989 may have been the biggest success of his career. The album reached #3 on the Billboard Top 200. Petty released five singles from the album and one of them, "I Won't Back Down," is the feature for today's Music Monday.
The song's message is a powerful one that we should all take to heart. It basically says that no matter what life throws at you or how tough times get, don't give up and don't back down. It's kind of a catchy tune with a fun video. I hope everyone enjoys it. You can watch it by clicking here.
And by the way - here's a little trivia for you. Can anyone tell me who the two other well-known musicians are in the video ? I'll give you a hint - they played with a popular British band that came on the scene in the 1960s. Who are they ? Leave a comment on this post with your guess.
