Tom Petty Songs featuring Stevie Nicks
Hey, folks!

I'm looking to make a full playlist/mix Cd of all the Stevie and Tom Petty collaborations as well as songs they wrote about each other or covers of each others' songs.

In no particular order, here are the ones I have:

Stop Draggin' My Heart Around
I Will Run To You
The Apartment Song
The Insider

That Made Me Stronger
Hard Advice

Southern Accents (duet with Charles Kelly)
I Need To Know
Don't Come Around Here No More (live w/Stevie)
Learning to Fly (live w/Stevie)

I know I'm missing a bunch ... help ??!!

Thanks - searched the board assuming a post about this already existed but couldn't find anything.

They both did a cover of Needles and Pins
The Heartbreakers play on Imperial Hotel

Tom, along with the Heartbreakers, played on the demos of Battle of the Dragon (the last takes) and Starshine. Stevie should sing backup also on You Can Still Change Your Mind from Hard Promises and Tom plays on Outside the Rain (and legend says that his voice is buried in the mix of the background vocals in one of the demos). There's also an outtake of a song called So Sad.

Then I remind you of the lone time they played together I Will Run to You live at NY in 1983 in case you forget (just because I love it).
Also on the Highway Companion Tour they also sang together American Girl and Insider (and obviouslySDMHA) as well as Gloria once.

Stevie and Sharon do background vocals on You Can Still Change Your Mind. The vocals are not as recognizable as other Stevie background vocals usually are, but anyway, she's on it. :)

RIGHT! I've been loving the hell out of "Wildflowers" lately - in fact, I truly feel it's his finest album - and I knew I knew the title "You Wreck Me" from another context. Thanks for the reminder!

And yes- though I hadn't listed it, "Free Fallin'" is a given. Thanks.

There's a recording of a live cover version of "Wild Thing" they did together.

Look on Youtube...they do some rough demos of "So Sad" & "Angel Baby"-sounds like they're just messing around in the studio but fun to listen to nonetheless!

I had forgotten before, but also If You Were My Love was a song written about Tom.

Stevie is also in Dont Come Around Here No More

I also prefer the LIVE VERSION of "Insider" from Tom's "Pack Up The Plantation" album--it has more energy and emotion than the studio version from "Hard Promises". I would include that version on the mix.

I can't find it on YouTube to share, but I have an awesome demo of "The Dealer" with Tom singing the lead! One of my more favorite Stevie and Tom moments.

Stevie and Tom did Knockin on Heavens Door together in Australia. Edge of Seventeen also has ties to Tom.

At the 1985 Heartbreakers concert at Compton Terrace, Stevie sang a great "Not Fade Away" with the boys.

A month later, I saw Stevie sing "Stop Dragging" with the Heartbreakers at Universal in L.A., and danced around a bit when they did "Don't Bring Me Down."

Outside The Rain on Bella Donna is the Heartbreakers minus Tom.
