Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Don't Come Around Here No More
Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers meet Alice in Wonderland. This clip is packed with oversized everything, from coffee cups to lumps of sugar. Ouch! It's a cute idea. Too bad it doesn't work. Watching Petty play the Mad Hatter just isn't my cut of tea. And seeing him and the Heartbreakers devour a young lady, who by now is a huge cake, made me lose my appetite. The slow-moving song has its good moments, but that's about it. Lewis Carroll must be turning over in his grave -- I simply turned the channel.
