Song of the Day – new Tom Petty! – For Real

In anticipation of the March 1 release of a new retrospective The Best of Everything, a new previously unreleased and un-bootlegged song by Tom Petty & and the Heartbreakers was released this week called For Real.  From listening to the lyrics, it sort of sounds like a manifesto on why musicians do what they do.

Can’t wait for the new retrospective.  I still can’t believe he is gone.

  1. I have a Tom Petty question for you- do you know of any CD collection that has his Girl On LSD on it? It was a b-side of a single back in the mid 90’s I believe.

    1. I actually don’t know. Never seen it on any. I think it was a b side for something off of Wildflowers? I think there were plans for a reissue of it with all the extra songs on it before he died. Not sure what current plans are if any.

      1. The first thing I have looked for- on all these recent anthologies etc- is – did they include it? I have the cassette version of the single- you are correct- it was the b-side to You Don’t Know How It Feels.
