Favorite Five Tom Petty Songs

Favorite Five Tom Petty Songs

I'm still trying to get over the great loss of this unforgettable man, and I have decided in remembrance of him I will now share my favorite five Tom Petty songs, including the performances that he recently blessed us with before his untimely death. #RIPTomPetty

Every Tom Petty song is pretty much my favorite. But these five hold the highest positions in my heart: (in no particular order)

You Don't Know How It Feels

But let me get to the point, let's roll another joint
And turn the radio loud, I'm too alone to be proud
You don't know how it feels
You don't know how it feels to be me

 

Runnin' Down A Dream

I felt so good like anything was possible
I hit cruise control and rubbed my eyes
The last three days the rain was unstoppable
It was always cold, no sunshine

 

Yer So Bad

But not me baby, I've got you to save me
Oh yer so bad, best thing I ever had
In a world gone mad, yer so bad

 

American Girl

And for one desperate moment there
He crept back in her memory
God it's so painful
Something that's so close
And still so far out of reach

 

I Won't Back Down 

Well, I won't back down
No I won't back down
You can stand me up at the gates of hell
But I won't back down
