The Black Heart Procession: “You Got Lucky”

I keep mentioning my non-ironic fondness for Tom Petty and my love of moody, Americana-ish music, so this live Heartbreakers cover by The Black Heart Procession (which my friend Robert sent me) is, of course, right up my alley.  I always think the best covers are ones that don't seem like obvious choices at first, but end up sound head-slappingly brilliant once the artist has reinterpreted them, and I think this song is a great example.  Who would have thought the 80s synth chords of Petty's original would translate so well to Black Heart Procession's brooding piano?

  1. i still don't understand why you even have to preface this as "non-ironic" fondness. tom petty is fantastic and i don't care who knows it.

  2. Couldn't agree more on this one, Tom Petty's works are simply breathtaking.
