Song: "Don't Do Me Like That"
Writer: Tom Petty
Original Release: October 19, 1979
Band: Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
Album: Damn the Torpedoes
"Don't Do Me Like That" was the first Top 10 hit on the Billboard charts for Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. Petty nearly gave it to the J. Geils Band as he felt it fit their sound better. In truth, he may have been right as it doesn't exactly fit with the rest of the Heartbreakers' catalog. Nonetheless, I would probably claim it as my favorite from their opus. The instrumental opening is one of the all-time greats.
