Can't Stop the Sun, The Last DJ

"Hey Mr. Business man..." Surprising only one track from The Last DJ appears on this list. Contains some seriously haunting organ work. A few near misses include "When Money Becomes King," "Dreamville," and "Joe."

I never cared for The Golden Rose, maybe because the instrumentals are haunting?

I have always been intrigued by this song. Love the eerie organ at the beginning, and I like it even more how it returns to finish the song.

I love Grew Up Fast! I really loved that She's The One album. It's one of my favorite albums really. I wish they would play more songs from that album in concert.

Great job, Ryan! This is a great thread!

This Old Town, Highway Companion

With rats to kill TP makes this "moderately" paced track sway to the sinister side with his lyrics. Great piano work and big Rickenbacker (?) guitar strums open the song up.

From here on out the list will start to rip your face off a bit more and not let up until the end. (Will continue on Sunday July 7th)

Almost any song could be sinister, now that I think about it, lol. What about that line in Melinda where he's going to crawl through her window one dark night? Scary if she's not expecting him!

I love Golden Rose, not sure I thought of it as sinister, but it is definitely haunting and that's why I love it so much. It's one of my favorite TP songs.

I like all the top 3 named for this list so far. Good choices. I can't wait to see what you pick, Ryan. Great thread.

Okay, here I go:

#3 - Takin' My Time

- for that screeching wah-wah guitar solo, the monotonous rhythm and the spooky line "scares me to think about what's on the road after me"

#2 - Fooled Again (I Don't Like It)

- especially for that stinging organ tone. I've never heard a more bewildering note in a song, it's like a needle. And of course for its gloomy feel and the teeth-crunching done-me-wrong lyrics.

#1 - Lost Without You (live)

- LOST! LOST! LOOOOOOOST!!!! Full of despair, full of self-resentment. One of these days, he's gonna get his shit together and stop screwing up. The moody instrumentation plus the uncompromising emotional outburst make this my guess for number one.

Well, maybe I should have put Good Enough in there, just because you like it so much, Ryan! :)

      Mark Felsot just announced on TPR: On Wednesday, July 29,  they’ll be premiering a never-before-heard song from Tom.

      Hey so I’m not sure if this is the place to post this, but I’m looking for a Martin HD-40 Tom Petty model if anyone has one or has a lead. Thanks!

      The Gainesville Music History Foundation is spearheading the effort to turn Tom's childhood home, 1715 NE 6th Terrace, into a historically designated landmark and a museum. Here’s where you can donate: http://www.gmhfi.org/tph/

      Mark Felsot posted in the TPN Facebook group this morning that they’re doing “Mojo Madness” all weekend on TPR since it’s Mojo’s 9th birthday. 
      What interested me specifically was his mentioning that they’ll be playing a song from the Mojo sessions never before heard on TPR. I guess what I’m wanting to find out is, has it also never been heard by me? 😂
      I don’t currently have TPR, so if anyone’s listening this morning and hears the song, would you mind sharing what it is? The suspense is killing me! 😂
      (and if anyone happens to record it if it’s not something we’ve heard before, I certainly wouldn’t be opposed to anyone sharing it 😜😂)

      On the one-year anniversary of Tom Petty’s passing, let’s rewind and take a listen to the band that has best represented American Rock music in the past 40 years. Giving them the nod as the quintessential American rock and roll band is no small honor. Petty and his boys owned the package of accessibility, writing, passion and sweet-ass rock and roll hooks. Here for you, my friends, is the RockForward list of Petty’s 7 Essential Albums (and a couple that were too good to leave off).
