"She's Always Been So Hard to Figure Out"

I am not a Tom Petty fan. That being said, I don’t dislike his music, but there’s just not much to write home (or blog) about. A few songs are pretty good (“American Girl”) and a few, well, not so much (“Into the Great Wide Open” which contains a line he lifted from Paul Westerberg, which can be assumed since the Replacements opened for Petty shortly before he shat out that terrible song). Anyway, this is the one song that pretty much justifies Petty’s continued, otherwise baffling existence. Thanks to the internet, I don't have to buy the CD to enjoy this lost gem.

Just thought I’d share.
