Stevie Nicks & Tom Petty – “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around” – (1981)

This was the debut single from Stevie Nicks’ solo career and it was the only song from her first album that she had no part in writing. This one was actually written by Tom Petty and a Heartbreaker (Mike Campbell). They were going to do it as a single for their band but someone managed to get Stevie Nicks into the recording booth and it ended up as a top five hit for her in 1981 (it peaked at #3). Really good song from the both of them, but largely overlooked today.
