Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers – Learning To Fly

Learning to Fly was a huge hit for Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers in 1991. It spent six weeks atop the Billboard Mainstream Rock charts.

He wrote the song after watching an interview with a pilot who said that it’s not hard to learn to fly, but coming down is the challenging part. Enjoy!
