    Wildflowers (all the rest) tracks?

    Enough! Or maybe it's just because time seems to go by the faster the older you get. I really don't get what's so damn hard about a WF re-release. It's not like they (the Petty camp, Tom Petty Inc., or whatever you might call "them") have no experience with archival releases at all. They did, imho, really good jobs with Playback, The Live Anthology and An American Treasure (The Best of Everything is good, too, but it's more of a no-brainer than AAT or the others). It's just becoming tragic, is what it is.

    Greatest Hits Vol. 2

    Oops somehow missed "Last DJ" song which (if you combine Live Anthology & video) ranks right up there between "Wrong Thing to Do" and "Walls".

    Well yes, I do agree that this isn't real & it's all in my mind. It's a fun thought experiment / a flight of fancy / part of long tradition of creating mix tapes.

    Greatest Hits Vol. 2

    There should be NO Greatest Hits Vol. 2. Tom and the band can no longer make that LP together anymore on their own. Vol 2 is now in your mind only and everyone's mind and Vol 2 will be different. "Let It Be". Buy all the LP's and enjoy all the great songs.

    Greatest Hits Vol. 2

    Updated list: YDKHIF----Bit hit single, and going chronologically would lead off. You Wreck Me---Enough of a hit that people seemed to recognize it in concert so I'd throw it on there. Honey Bee---Dave Grohl Version from Saturday Night Live. This would have to plastered on the cover. HONEY BEE with DAVE GROHL of FOO FIGHTERS! Maybe a big sticker and used in the promotion. They could even run the interview bit with Grohl when he mentions how Tom asked him to join the band etc. This is now three songs from WF but YDKHIF has to be on there as it was in my opinion, their last HUGE hit. Walls was popular but nowhere near YDKHIF. Walls (Circus)---Their last big hit single in my opinion. Angel Dream----I figure this would be a record concession to Tom since he presumably liked the song a lot, performed it somewhat frequently and maybe the record company thinks a short sincere ballad would become popular. I guess the question is, #2 or #4. I was initially leaning towards the one without percussion, just Tom and a guitar, I don't know. Either way, I think this song could fit and maybe would be popular if played on radio or online, especially the version with the drumbeat, almost sounds countryish. Room At The Top----They tried promoting this at the time, so it's a single even though I don't think it ever took off. But it qualifies as an attempt. I'd almost cut this because of how dour the opening seems and could be a bit much going from Angel Dream into this. Maybe I'd swap this and Free Girl Now's positions for a better flow. Free Girl Now----the first free single online or something, so a lot of people heard this. Again, it wasn't a hit per my view but on it goes. Also, maybe they'd figure that people who downloaded it might recall it and like to one degree or another. Swingin'---since it was a single The Last DJ----wasn't this in a Simpsons episode? Did they try promoting it on Saturday Night Live at the time? I think so. On it goes. Saving Grace----They performed it quite a bit in 2006 & 2008, it's upbeat. Throw it on there. ISHKI----They made a live or "live" in the studio video of this, trying to support this so this belongs here. American Dream Plan B---since it was a single, also makes for a more rockin' experience toward the record's latter half You Get Me High---wasn't this its own short lived single? Or an attempt at one. Anyway, I think it's a solid positive number to end the collection on. Though another possibility would be Forgotten Man since the band did keep that one going in concerts. While My Guitar----Since the original ends with a cover why not do the same here; big selling point is Prince and the first time this moment was officially released, assuming all the legal rights to something like this could be worked out. 14 songs, I think it has a pretty good flow to it, epsecially keeping Room at the Top and Swingin' apart which to me feel too similar to have next to each other, good to ahve the shorter FGN in between. cheers

    The thing is some of the youtube views are the same people watching clips over and over again. That's fine if three million people watch Swingin' or whatever online but that doesn't necessarily translate to a big reaction in concert, nor does it make the song a hit. Which sounds odd. At a certain point TPATH's music ceased being considered contemporary and became classic rock, I think. Probably sometime after WF, I'd say maybe after Walls. Tom's songwriting changed and the big promotion wasn't there the way it had been in the past, as well as there being new music and different styles that became popular. So maybe it was inevitable at some point the songs wouldn't be as popular as the earlier material. My impression is anytime Tom went off the beaten path in concert, some of the audience, a minority went with him and the others waited/hoped for the next song and a big hit they recognized. If someone picked up Greatest Hits they'd recognize all if not most of the songs; I don't think that would be the case with GH2 no matter how many attempted hit singles the record company tried to have. That's why I think Dave Grohl....DAVE GROHL of FOO FIGHTERS would be a big selling point, same goes for WITH PRINCE! First time released! Those two songs could help propel GH2 in sales, then it's up to the listener, they'd either respond to the tracks or not but there's no way GH2 would ever top or surpass the original, in my opinion. Still, interesting to read what people come up with . cheers

    Benmont Shows

    I took a peek at a Benmont clip online, someone taped his first (?) try at American Girl and he barely got into it before the emotions overcame him. That raw grief was too much; it felt wrong to have the clip up so even though the clip has already been removed I also deleted the other topic that I started. That's it. Peace.

    I just saw something that completely changed my mind on this topic; I shouldn't have posted the video. My mistake. cheers

    That is a huge drop-off. Makes sense WMGGW would have the most since it's a Beatles song/tribute and Prince on stage with 'em.

    Further on what songs have large numbers of views on YouTube (& therefore could be considered popular "hits"), this is what I've found so far from the official videos put up by tompetty.com Coincidentally it's 17 songs 😀💘 Most views While My Guitar Gently Weeps - live @ Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame 68 million Learning To Fly 50 million You Don't Know How It Feels 33 million Between 5 million and 1 million Wildflowers It's Good To Be King I Should've Known It Swingin' Room At The Top Something Good Coming You Wreck Me American Girl - live @ Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame Saving Grace Crawling Back To You Scare Easy - Mudcrutch Wrong Thing To Do Southern Accents - live @ Gainseville ie from the documentary Honey Bee

    For the record it appears you are correct since the recording has now been deleted. I realize you are done with this thread but thought it worth pointing out and I hope this thread hasn't soured you on the forum as it is a pretty nice place. cheers

    Greatest Hits Vol. 2

    Yes, there's quite a number of attempts at this one might enjoy reading too! Ah, I forgot that was a single, I guess I'd add it to my list after Free Girl Now though I think it really pushes the patience of the casual Tom Petty fan for all the reasons some people like it; meandering groove jams are not what Tom's music is largely or popularly associated with. cheers

    Greatest Hits Vol. 2

    If it's "Hits" one definition = big impact songs that resonated / singles that were popular. tricky in contemporary era ... drawing on physical units, downloads, data from YouTube & how often played on streaming services. So in that sense, logically, a song on YouTube with 68 million hits is a contender. Even if hahaha it's 68 Prince fans watching it a million times each. While My Guitar Gently Weeps. {I'm here for fun & cheerful discussion about Tom Petty music.}

    Greatest Hits Vol. 2

    For people interested in this thread, I'd like to suggest the previous threads, on this forum, dedicated to the issue of a GH sequel. I don't particularly like the idea of a GH2 at this point.. Or any point.. what's the point, so to speak. That said... it's a little fun, theoretically.. I think those are good, focused, realistic thoughts if such an album was ever really to be constructed for a market. It's not my type of release, admittedly, but for what it is. Messing the thing up with live records, Mudcrutch or TV appearances is not what would end up in my "Good ideas!" folder. Additional tracks to MJ2LD list would be: - Scratch Honey Bee & Free Girl Now - Swinging(single) - Dreamville (seems key) - Flirting With Time (single) - Down South (seems key) - Good Enough (seems key) - Forgotten Man ("single") - American Dream Plan B ("single") - Mystery Of Love (bonus) - Two Men Talking (studio/bonus) That is.. YDKHIF YWM Walls AD Swingin' R@TT TLDJ Dreamville FWT SG DS ISHKI GE FM UGMH ADPB MOL TMT

    Random Thoughts Thread

    It's not really my style but it was interesting to hear; I did like that violin solo or should I call it a fiddle? Good playing! The song is way too country for me but I reckon this is quite the treat for the TPATH fans who lean more towards the country side of things. And here it is, hidden away in the Random Thoughts Thread by Mr. Shelter. cheers
  27. MaryJanes2ndLastDance

    Greatest Hits Vol. 2

    I appreciate the logic but I figure there's no way they'd release a GH2 without having You Don't Know How It Feels on there. That song was huge! And if you're going to have one WF song, then why not a couple if they fit? cheers

    Greatest Hits Vol. 2

    The problem with Greatest Hits 2 is there aren't enough in my opinion, what I consdier consider songs that the crowd at a gig would recognize! Greatest Hits is perfect as it is but I went ahead and played along for the fun of it. These are the songs I think a record company would select to fashion GH2, not necessarily the ones I would pick to share with people. YDKHIF----Bit hit single, and going chronologically would lead off. You Wreck Me---Enough of a hit that people seemed to recognize it in concert so I'd throw it on there. Honey Bee---Dave Grohl Version from Saturday Night Live. This would have to plastered on the cover. HONEY BEE with DAVE GROHL of FOO FIGHTERS! Maybe a big sticker and used in the promotion. They could even run the interview bit with Grohl when he mentions how Tom asked him to join the band etc. This is now three songs from WF but YDKHIF has to be on there as it was in my opinion, their last HUGE hit. Walls was popular but nowhere near YDKHIF. Walls (Circus)---Their last big hit single in my opinion. Angel Dream----I figure this would be a record concession to Tom since he presumably liked the song a lot, performed it somewhat frequently and maybe the record company thinks a short sincere ballad would become popular. I guess the question is, #2 or #4. I was initially leaning towards the one without percussion, just Tom and a guitar, I don't know. Either way, I think this song could fit and maybe would be popular if played on radio or online, especially the version with the drumbeat, almost sounds countryish. Room At The Top----They tried promoting this at the time, so it's a single even though I don't think it ever took off. But it qualifies as an attempt. I'd almost cut this because of how dour the opening seems and could be a bit much going from Angel Dream into this. Maybe I'd swap this and Free Girl Now's positions for a better flow. Free Girl Now----the first free single online or something, so a lot of people heard this. Again, it wasn't a hit per my view but on it goes.

Anyway, I think it's a solid positive number to end the collection on. Though another possibility would be Forgotten Man since the band did keep that one going in concerts. Anyway, there's my thoughts on it. cheers
