Mary Janes Last Dance
‘There’s pigeons now in Market Square / She’s standing in her underwear / Looking down from a hotel room / Nightfall will be comin’ soon’
When I first heard Tom Petty sing Mary Jane’s Last Dance I thought he’d written one of the best vampire love songs ever. After I bought it I realized it was more about drugs and suicide but I still like to think that the song is about a hot Indiana vampire who leaves town and moves on after each kill. Anyway, that’s the way I like it so that’s the way I painted it. Naturally, I got rid of the underwear too! Sorry about the crotch hiding logo; it won’t be on your print and there’s no surprises (!) under there!
