3349. “Breakdown” by Grace Jones

Fan video:

Unless you've heard Grace Jones’ cover of “Breakdown,” it might seem odd to imagine her singing a Tom Petty song. As it happens, this is yet another excellent choice by Jones and crew. She sings this one a bit more than some of her other covers and she manages to make it actually quite pretty. Petty wrote the third verse just for her.
