"A Woman in Love (It's Not Me)" by Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers

Song#:  0694
Date:  08/01/1981
Debut:  82
Peak:  79
Weeks:  6
Genre:  Rock

Pop Bits:  Petty's second single from the "Hard Promises" album had a very weak showing on the pop chart, but hit #5 on the Mainstream Rock chart. By this time, the album was already a success reaching #5 and it would soon go platinum.

ReduxReview:  The album itself is another great one in Petty's catalog, but it doesn't necessarily have a good batch of go-to singles. "The Waiting" was the best shot and it only got to #19, so that leaves a lesser quality single like this one floundering on the chart despite it being a solid song. Rock radio grabbed it up for a bit but it is not one of the most memorable singles from the group.

ReduxRating:  6/10

Trivia:  When artists are recording their albums, they may have a working title for the LP as a reference until a final title is chosen. The working title for this album was "Benmont's Revenge," named after the group's keyboardist Benmont Tench.
