Stevie Nicks was pretty popular in her own right following her departure from Fleetwood Mac. Known for this and her ability to write her own songs, she wasn’t too pleased to replace one of her own songs with someone else’s for the 1981 album Bella Donna.

“Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around” was written by Tom Petty and Mike Campbell for Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and Nicks sang on it. After the fact, she couldn’t have been too upset since “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around” became one of her best songs.
