The Horse Head Presents: 7 Tom Petty Lost Gems


TOM PETTY
Arrived --  October 20, 1950  
Took Off - October 2, 2017 
R.I.P.

The Horse Head chose seven lost gems from everybody's brother...Tom Petty.  I tried not to overthink it...and went with the ones that hit me in the feels...as I remember.  (On a different day, different songs.)

"Square One"  -  Tom Petty / "Highway Companion" (2006)

"Square one, my slate is clear
Rest your head on me, my dear
It took a world of trouble, took a world of tears
Took a long time... to get back here."


"Dogs On The Run"  -  Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers / "Southern Accent" (1985)

"...some of us are different.
It's just something in our blood.
There's no need for explanations.
We're just dogs on the run."


"Change Of Heart"  -  Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers / "Long After Dark" (1982)

"You never needed me.
You only wanted me around."


"Swingin'"  --  Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers / "Echo" (1990)

"She went down swingin'
...like Sonny Liston."


"Fooled Again (I Don't Like It)"  - Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers / "self-titled" (1976) 
  
"If two is one I might as well be three.
It's good to see you think so much of me."


"You Tell Me"  -  Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers / "Damn The Torpedos" (1979)  
"...I don't understand this
But that's alright, I can take a little pain."


"Dumbass Song"  -  Tom Petty 
"People think I'm not smart
...but I'm stupid."

Good stuff!
