Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers - Don't Come Around Here No More

One of my favorites. This was written by Dave Stewart for Tom Petty. Dave plays the opium smoking caterpillar.


  1. I dunno...What makes you think it's Opium he's (supposed to be) smoking? It doesn't look like the traditional opium pipes one sees. I would suggest that maybe it is Hashish.

    When Tom Petty first came out with I NEED TO KNOW, radio stations didn't know how to categorize him, so they lumped him in with the New Wave groups just then coming on the scene. I NEED TO KNOW's still my favorite.

  2. What else would a caterpillar smoke?

    New Wave was a duming ground but good selling genre in the day.
