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.

Song of the Day – Special Valentine’s Day Edition: Steve Earle – Valentine’s Day

Just coming in under the wire for today.  I’ve always loved this Steve Earle song.  Protagonist of song is a total screw up who always forgets to do the stuff you’re supposed to do on Valentine’s Day – no flowers, no candy, no card.

” I know that I swore that I wouldn’t forget… I wrote it all down… I lost it I guess…”

But he just lays it all out there for his love about how he feels.  Very touching and gets at the real meaning of the day.

“The way you love me everyday… is Valentine’s Day”
