"Stop Draggin' My Heart Around" was the first single from Stevie Nicks' debut solo album Bella Donna. It was written by Tom Petty and Mike Campbell as a Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers song, but Jimmy Iovine, who was also working Stevie Nicks at the time, arranged for her to sing on it. Petty sang with Nicks in the chorus and bridge, whilst his entire band played on the song.
A performance of the song in the studio was used as the promotional video.
The song reached #3 on the US Billboard Hot 100. It was not a success in Europe, however: reaching only #50 in the UK.
The two singers performed another duet on Nicks 1983 album The Wild Heart entitled I Will Run To You, and on Petty's 1981 album Hard Promises, "Insider", and frequently performed impromptu live versions of these and '60s classic Needles and Pins in many shows throughout the 80s.
