"Stop Draggin' My Heart Around" was the first single from Stevie Nicks' debut solo album Bella Donna. The album's only song that was neither written nor co-written by Nicks, it was written by Tom Petty and Mike Campbell as a Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers song, but Jimmy Iovine, who was also working for Stevie Nicks at the time, arranged for her to sing on it. Petty sang with Nicks in the chorus and bridge, while his entire band (save Ron Blair, whose bass track was played by Donald "Duck" Dunn instead) played on the song.
A performance of the song in the studio was used as the promotional video. The video was the 25th video to be played on MTV's launch date on August 1st 1981.
The song peaked at #3 on the American Billboard Hot 100 for six consecutive weeks. However, in the UK, the song only managed to peak at #50.
