Today's offering is dedicated to and inspired by a blog from Dominus entitled Hi Neighbor.

So what's it to be? Will our Internet be an online community built upon free expression and open communication, or will it be a world where shifting paradigms and infrastructures roll over the rights of individuals and cause blights in their wake? I know what my choice is, and anyone who reads the rest of my articles can probably figure that out, too. I won't back down. The question is, what are you doing to make this electronic frontier into a community?
Maybe that's whats needed here, more of the Won't Back Down spirit. I suggest we all take a giant cue from Dominus and make this internet community just that, a community and not a commercial! Let's Not Back Down!

Thomas Earl Petty (born October 20, 1950 in Gainesville, Florida) is an American musician. Petty is a graduate of Gainesville High School. Petty did not have any musical aspirations before Elvis Presley visited his hometown. After working with his early bands The Sundowners, The Epics, and Mudcrutch (which also included future Heartbreakers members Mike Campbell and Benmont Tench) he began his recording career with Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers when the band broke onto the national music scene with their 1976 self-titled debut album. Still, it took America a full year to catch up to the album. "Breakdown" was re-released to radio and became a Top 40 hit in 1977 after word filtered back the band was creating a firestorm in England.

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers

"I Won't Back Down"

Composers: {Jeff Lynne, Tom Petty}



Well I won't back down
No I won't back down
You can stand me up at the gates of hell
But I won't back down

No I'll stand my ground, won't be turned around
And I'll keep this world from draggin me down
gonna stand my ground
... and I won't back down

Chorus:
(I won't back down...)
Hey baby, there ain't no easy way out
(and I won't back down...)
hey I will stand my ground
and I won't back down

Well I know what's right, I got just one life
in a world that keeps on pushin me around
but I'll stand my ground
...and I won't back down

(I won't back down...)
Hey baby, there ain't no easy way out
(and I won't back down...)
hey I will stand my ground
(I won't back down)
and I won't back down...

(I won't back down...)
Hey baby, there ain't no easy way out
(I won't back down)
hey I won't back down
(and I won't back down)
hey baby, there ain't no easy way out
(and I won't back down)
hey I will stand my ground
(and I won't back down)
and I won't back down
(I won't back down)
No I won't back down...

Well I'm sure not backn down....the only problem is ...I forgot what I was not backn down from...anyway ..when I first heard Tom Petty, I thought he sounded like Bob Dylan but as time went on I discovered he had a distinct stye of his own. I enjoy how he weaves his instrumentals into his driving bright colored sound.

Again Mr. Petty had to say:

I'm for standin' up, I'm for breakin' free
I don't want fate handed down to me
Yeah I'm for movin' on, try another town
Time ain't changin' nothin', take a look around

Oh, I'm lost in a one story town
Where everything's close to the ground
Yeah the same shit goes down
Nothing turns around
It's a one story town


She was only seventeen
But I held her to her word
Had to push her luck
Thought she couldn't burn

No it didn't hurt me
When she had to leave
She had a far away feeling
Wasn't part of me

Oh, I'm lost in a one story town
Where everything's close to the ground
Yeah the same shit goes down
Nothing turns around
It's a one story town

Great commentary on an American original, and a great song.

I appreciate the background information you've provided on various musicians. They're fascinating.
