Spook Rock: Mary Jane's Last Dance (1993)

Why this Tom Petty track isn't on the soundtrack to the CW's iZombie yet, I don't know.

"Mary Jane's Last Dance" might have some implications in the minds of some regarding drug use (Mary Jane is a slang term for marijuana), but as the video clearly shows, the subject matter is entirely different.

Petty plays a morgue assistant who becomes smitten with a recent corpse (Kim Basinger), to the point where he takes her home for dinner.

If Petty were to remake the video today, odds are pretty good that iZombie star Rose MacIver would replace Basinger. Heh, to take it a step further, maybe we could have Tim Burton direct and squeeze in Johnny Depp somewhere, and......!
