    If you’re a fan of Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers you recognize that line as the odd intro to “Even the Losers” on Damn the Torpedoes
    Today we lost a rock & roll legend who spanned 4 decades. He was the voice of the outsider, the jilted boyfriend. Anybody who’s ever felt the yearning of the pursuit of a girl, the heartbreak of losing a girl, or the elation of getting a girl can relate to his lyrics.

    Tom Petty’s music was a big part of the soundtrack of my young adult life. And “Full Moon Fever” was the album that accompanied me on a long drive I took in 1989 to get back together with Maude after almost letting her go.
    "I rolled on as the sky grew dark
    I put the pedal down to make some time
    There's something good waitin' down this road
    I'm pickin' up whatever's mine"

    Seems to have worked out pretty well for him and paid long term dividends.

    Saw him when he opened for Bob Dylan years ago. Great show. Great song writer. Great performer. He will be missed. Heaven's rock and roll band just got even better.

    Decided this thread was more appropriate than the 90's thread for this one ;)

    I always liked this song but thought the video was kind of creepy. But thanks for sharing.

    I was a waitress at a restaurant in the early 90's. We had 3 CD's we played over and over and this was one of them. I never got tired of it.

    Well, I know what's right
    I got just one life
    In a world that keeps on pushin' me around
    But I'll stand my ground

    And I won't back down...

    Thanks Tom.... :)
