I really like listening to it.

It has a good harmonica part in it and I think it is the best Tom Petty song.

Here's my boilerplate positive review for an MP3 download: No problems, just what I was expecting. The ease of ordering MP3s from Amazon will keep me coming back. The cloud player and automatic download are great.

I like the group and the song. I guess that dates me. It is amazing how many songs one can write with only four cords. four cord petty is a master at minimal musical variation diversity in his tunes but they all seem great. I guess if you like one you'll like them all.

How could anyone NOT love Tom Petty?!?! The video for this song won the MTV Video Music Award for best Male Video in 1994. Many people have speculated as to the true meaning of this song. The video clearly depicts a love story gone awry, but the words loosely refer to something else all together. When asked if the song was about drugs, Heartbreaker guitarist Mike Campbell said, "In the verse there is still the thing about an Indiana girl on an Indiana night, just when it gets to the chorus he had the presence of mind to give it a deeper meaning. My take on it is it can be whatever you want it to be. A lot of people think it's a drug reference, and if that's what you want to think, it very well could be, but it could also just be a goodbye love song." In the rest of the interview, Campbell said that the song was originally titled "Indiana Girl" and the first chorus "Hey, Indiana Girl, go out and find the world." He went on to say that their producer, Rick Rubin didn't agree singing about "hey, Indiana Girl," so Rubin changed it a week later. Thus began the age old battle of what the heck is this song about. In my minds eye I see the video as I listen to this song and prefer to think of it as that lost love never to be returned type deal.

I remember when "Mary Jane's Last Dance" was first released. It was 1993, and my first solid introduction to Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. It is definitely an opus, in a fairly short amount of time. This is highly poetic rock, telling of a beautiful girl named Mary Jane and is a lament at her early death. The instruments sound huge on the track, with Tom's expert harmonica playing adding much to the driving drums. This is classic rock at its finest.

Tom Petty at his finest. Great song and better video! I love the music in the song. It does not sound like any of the other Petty songs.
