#309: Damn the Torpedoes by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers

11.10.2011


Damn the Torpedoes by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers (1979)

Favorite Track(s): "Refugee" and "Even the Losers" and "Don't Do Me Like That" and "What Are You Doin' in My Life?"

Thoughts: Yay! I'm so glad to have gotten to some Tom Petty on this list. He's always been an artist whose catalog I wanted to dig into, but never found the time. My favorite Tom Petty song (right now) is "Down South" which my dad introduced to me. It's a perfect road trip song.

Also, I think his song "Wildflowers" is the PERFECT walk down the aisle song if you're outdoors. And he's in the Traveling' Wilburys! J'adore.

Anyway, enough gushing about Tom. Let's get to the album! It was a joy to listen to. Full-bodied rock. "Don't Do Me Like That" alone will last forever.

Is This Better Than Help!?: I'm afraid so. So good!
