Posted in #1 Mainstream Rock Charts, 1991, Classic Rock, Country Rock, Tom Petty on October 9, 2007 by pelicancup

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. While many people argue that the song was written about the feeling of smoking marijuana, Petty has confirmed many times in interviews that the song is actually about flying an airplane. 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!
