Two weeks ago, after a lifetime of wanting to see Tom Petty, I finally got a chance. He lived up to every expectation. Every note was perfect. Every song was was a piece of the sound track to my life and the lives of the 10's of thousands that had gathered to see him play. Not only that.. he taught me an important life lesson. RIP Tom Petty #ThankYou so much for everything.
There are SO many Tom Petty songs that mean everything to me.... This one.. while it might not have been his most well known number... was always something that gave me hope when I needed.
Even the losers... get lucky sometimes
This one.. again not one of his biggest.... but I've always just thought it was uncommonly beautiful.
This song was written as a response to an arsonist burning down Tom Petty's home... and it's provided words to live by for ALL of us ever since....
When I saw him just a couple of weeks ago.. he closed with this... and it was... PERFECT.
