"Jammin' Me," Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
By Rick Shefchik
Youngstown Vindicator - June 1, 1987

I like the topical, free-association quality of the lyrics Tom Petty and Bob Dylan came up with for this song. As in more spontaneous days gone by, the song is a slice of 1987 that doesn't have one eye peeled for lawsuits, cover versions of potential interpretion by the "Solid Gold Dancers."
