I Won't Back Down | Tom Petty (WEA)
The Traveling Wilbury Mafia comes up with another mix and match hit. This time Tom Petty songs a song which Jeff Lynne produced and George Harrison should have written. The verses in particular are pure George while Jeff throws his familiar vocal weight behind the choruses. Admittedly it's formula music, but this formula has still got a bit of steam left in it.
