My Top 1000 Songs #550: The Waiting

[I've been writing up my Top 1000 songs on a daily basis--you can see them all in descending order by hitting the All My Favorite Songs tag.]

I've always taken Tom Petty for granted. Some solid albums, and a lot of great songs, but I don't often wake up in the morning and put on a Tom Petty record. Still, if you're in the car and "The Waiting" comes on the radio, you're not getting out of the car until it's over. That just goes without saying.
