Earworm of the day: Into the Great Wide Open by Tom Petty

YouTube Preview ImageRecently I asked a group of seventeen-year-olds whether any of them had ever heard of  Tom Petty. They just stared at me. Later my husband (who’s a huge fan) informed me that Tom Petty hadn’t had a radio hit since the ’90s, so there was little wonder about the teenagers’ lack of interest. Anyway, I borrowed my husband best-of-Tom-Petty CD and started listening. I enjoy Into the Great Wide Open particularly, so here it is.

What music do you like to listen to that modern teenagers have never heard of?
