Tom Petty - Don't Come Around Here No More

Don’t Come Around Here No More – Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers (1985) Music Video

Don't Come Around Here No more is a song written by Tom Petty of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and David A. Stewart of Eurythmics.

It was released in February 1985 as the lead single from Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers' Southern Accents album.


The original inspiration was a romantic encounter that producer David A. Stewart of Eurythmics had with Stevie Nicks of Fleetwood Mac.  

Stewart explained that the title's phrase was actually uttered by Nicks. She had broken up with Eagles guitarist Joe Walsh the night before and invited Stewart to her place for a party after an early Eurythmics show in Los Angeles.

Stewart did not know who she was at the time, but went anyway.  When the party goers all disappeared to a bathroom for a couple of hours to snort cocaine, he decided to go upstairs to bed.

He woke up at 5 a.m. to find Nicks in his room trying on Victorian clothing and described the entire scenario as very much reminiscent of Alice in Wonderland.

Later that morning, Walsh came by to find Nicks and Stewart heard Nicks throw Walsh out, telling him, "Don't come around here no more."

According to Nicks, the song was originally written for her album Rock a Little but she declined it after Petty performed the vocals for her, feeling she couldn't do the song justice.
