For me, good summer song and a good driving song are one and the same. Sun shining, windows down, sunglasses on with just the right tune. This all checks all the boxes for me. Mike Campbell’s killer guitar Solo at the end of the song is not to be missed.
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.
One of my favorite unappreciated songs from an underrated album.
