Mary Jane's Last Dance by Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers

  • In a Songfacts interview with Mike Campbell, the Heartbreakers guitarist explained how this song came together: "That song took on a few shapes. It was written in my garage. I didn't write it, but we were jamming in the garage and Tom was playing one of my guitars. It was called 'Indiana Girl,' the first chorus was 'Hey, Indiana Girl, go out and find the world.' We liked the song and Rick Rubin suggested we cut it. It had actually been around for a while, just the basic riff and that chorus. We cut the song and Tom was singing the chorus, and he decided he just couldn't get behind singing about 'Hey, Indiana Girl,' so we went back and about a week later he came in and said 'I've got a better idea,' so he changed the chorus to 'Last dance with Mary Jane.' 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."

  • Petty never said what this song is about, but there are two common interpretations. It could be about Petty's divorce from his wife Jane, which happened a year before this was recorded. Another possibility is that it is about marijuana, as "Mary Jane" is slang for pot and the lyrics refer to killing the pain, which the drug is known for. Mike Campbell offered this explanation: "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."

  • Petty made some strange videos, and this was no exception. Tom played a mortician who takes home a corpse played by Kim Basinger. When he gets her home, he puts her in a wedding dress and dances with her. Then he puts her in a pickup truck and throws her into the ocean, and she opens her eyes as she sinks. It won Best Male Video at the MTV Video Music Awards.

    The clip was directed by Keir McFarlane, who later did Sheryl Crow's "If It Makes You Happy." If Petty seems strangely comfortable in the role of mortician, it might be because he used to be a gravedigger.

  • Basinger was not the first choice for the video. Petty wanted Sharon Stone, but she didn't answer his request. Petty wanted a raving beauty to play the corpse so it would make sense why his character keeps her around.

  • Petty played the guitar solo at the end after Campbell persuaded him to do it. Mike is known as an outstanding guitarist, but he thought Tom had a good sound going, so he told him to play a fuzzy sort of guitar solo. Says Mike, "He actually played a nice little bit at the end of that."

  • Mike Campbell told Songfacts: "An interesting thing about that record, the same day we did the last overdubs, that guitar and a few little bits, we did a rough mix here at my house, just did it by hand. Then we went to three or four different studios over the next couple of weeks and tried to do a proper mix, and we could never beat that rough mix, so that was the mix we put out. It's an interesting track, it's very inaccurate, it's kind of greasy and loose. That day we just gelled and every time we mixed it we could clean up the sound and make it more posh, but it just didn't have the juice that one mix had. "

  • In 2006, The Red Hot Chili Peppers released "Dani California," which sounded very similar to this and was also produced by Rick Rubin. Petty showed no interest in suing the band, as they felt it was not malicious. The first eight bars of both songs sound similar, but the chords are different. In this song, the chords are "Am, G, D, Am" and in "Dani California," the chords are "Am, G, Dm, Am." Both of these chord progressions are very common in rock music. >>

  • Petty told Mojo magazine January 2010 that Mary Jane is the same character as the female in "American Girl," "with a few hard knocks."

    Mary Jane's last dance

    Mary Jane's Last Dance

    She grew up in an Indiana town
    Had a good lookin' mama who never was around0013 With them Indiana boys on an Indiana night

    Well, she moved down here at the age of eighteen
    She blew the boys away, it was more than they'd seen , "I dig you baby, but I got to keep movin' on
    Keep movin' on. "

    Last dance with Mary Jane, one more time to kill the pain
    I feel summer creepin' in and I'm tired of this town again

    Well, I don't know, but I've been told
    You never slow down, you never grow old
    I'm tired of screwin' up, tired of going down
    Tired of myself, tired of this town

    Oh, my, my, oh, hell yes
    Honey, put on that party dress
    Buy me a drink, sing me a song
    Take me as I come cause I can't stay long

    Last dance with Mary Jane, one more time to kill the pain
    I feel summer creepin' in and I'm tired of this town again

    There's pigeons down on Market Square
    She's standin' in her underwear
    Lookin' down from a hotel room
    Nightfall will be comin' soon

    Oh, my, my, oh, hell yes
    You got to put on that party dress
    It was too cold to cry when I woke up alone
    I hit my last number and walked to the road

    Last dance with Mary Jane, one more time to kill the pain
    I feel summer creepin' in and I'm tired of this town again

    was at home,
    But she grew tall and developed early
    Indian nights with Indian boys.

    She came here at eighteen,
    Slayed the local boys who had never seen anything like it.
    Our acquaintance took place, the two of us went into the gap.
    She said, "You're a cool kid, but I have to move on,
    Move on all the time."

    One last dance with Mary Jane, one more to numb the pain.
    I feel the approach of summer, and I'm sick of this town again.

    I don't know, but I was told:
    Who does not slow down does not grow old.
    I'm tired of failures, tired of failures,
    Tired of myself, tired of this town.

    Oh my God, yes, damn it,
    Honey, put on your evening dress.
    Buy me a drink, sing me a song,
    Seize the moment while I'm here, I won't stay long.

    One last dance with Mary Jane, one more to numb the pain.
    I feel the approach of summer, and I'm sick of this town again.

    Pigeons walk in the market square.
    She is standing in her underwear
    Looking out of the hotel window.
    Twilight will fall soon.

    Oh my God, yes, damn it,
    You were wearing that evening dress.
    I woke up alone, I could not cry from the cold,
    I took a last drag and went out onto the road.

    One last dance with Mary Jane, one more to numb the pain.
    I feel the approach of summer, and I'm sick of this town again.

    205 years since the birth of the composer Niels Wilhelm Gade

    Danish composer, violinist and organist Niels Wilhelm Gade was born on February 22, 1817 in Copenhagen in the family of a musical instrument maker. The father, busy with his work, paid little attention to the musical studies of his son. This was the reason that the child, left to himself, willingly and with great interest took up music and independently and quite quickly learned to play the violin, guitar and piano. A little later, music lessons became systematic. F. G. Wexshall became his teacher in playing the violin. In 1833, Niels' first public performance in concert took place. The performance was marked by considerable success, and from 1834 he began to play in the court orchestra in Copenhagen.

    Austrian pianist, composer and conductor Johann Nepomuk Hummel was born on November 14, 1778 in Pressburg into the family of a military musician. It is clear that from early childhood music surrounded him. When the child was four years old, his father began to teach him to play the violin. Either the teacher was not up to par, or for some other reason, but the boy did not like this instrument. He was irresistibly attracted to playing the piano, to which he became addicted from a very young age. After some time, guided by material considerations, the family moved from Pressburg (by the way, now it is Bratislava) to Vienna.

    The German composer Friedrich Kiel was born on October 7, 1821 in the small town of Puderbach, not far from Siegen in the Rhine Province, in the family of a school teacher. His great interest in music at an early age found support from his father, who was a good amateur musician. After some time, a little grown up child with brilliance began to perform quite often in the family circle, masterfully playing the violin. The news of the talented boy spread throughout the district, and the local prince Karl Wittgenstein-Berleberg decided to help the talented child, and began by teaching him to play the violin himself. Only a year has passed and Friedrich has already been able to perform the technically most difficult Viotti Concerto, and as a violinist to begin performances as part of the prince's orchestra.

    Russian composer Alexander Alexandrovich Alyabyev was born on August 15, 1787 in the family of the Tobolsk governor. The family came from an old noble family and left many glorious pages in the history of our country. The childhood years of the child were spent in Tobolsk, where he received an excellent primary education. A wonderful family tradition was a serious passion for music. Home concerts were constant and usual entertainment here, in which a good orchestra of serf musicians took part, and local amateur musicians performed as soloists. All this, of course, influenced the boy's musical development from an early age, and, not by chance, music forever became one of his favorite activities.

    On May 18, 1901, a boy was born in a poor French family in the city of Bordeaux, who was named Henri-Pierre. He was destined to become a major French composer, and the first sign of such a fate appeared when the boy was only three years old. Somehow, capriciously, he did not want to get out of bed at the request of his mother, but suddenly, hearing the sounds of a shepherd's flute passing by the house, he quickly got up and, running to the piano, tried to repeat the melody he had heard. His first music teacher was an elderly pianist neighbor. The family was pious, and at the age of nine, Henri, who then dreamed of becoming a priest, was already serving in the church on the kliros.
