Tom Petty – You Got Lucky

Tom Petty may well have been the smartest artist going in the early MTV days.  Sure he would one day be known as the prettiest member of the Travelling Wilburys, but Tom knew early on that he couldn’t get by on looks and talent alone.  By being a very early adopter of the music video as short film school of thought, Tom and his trusty Heartbreakers not only held their own against the pretty boys and girls of the music video world, they downright dominated the airwaves.  If I recall correctly, You Got Lucky was the first Tom Petty clip I saw with any regularity, and even this low budget wonder was quirky and interesting enough to hold my attention in a world of flashpots, big hair, and glittery single gloves.
