tompetty-lastdancewithmaryjane-2This song came out in 1993, during what I consider to be the beginning of the end of MTV’s music era; when the network first starting airing more shows, and fewer videos.  Mary Jane’s Last Dance would never have become so widely popular without the video.  Two things about it stand out to me:

1.  I’m not sure if I was ever aware of the obvious marijuana reference that Tom Petty was making.

2.  It’s hard to believe that Kim Bassinger’s prime was 20+ years ago.
