When I hear this song the teenager in my still snickers and thinks “this about smoking pot!”
To me, Tom Petty is the perfect blend of old school country and old school rock. This song is the perfect example of that. The harmonica in this song totally reminds me of an old school country song but the guitar is totally rock and roll.
I also love the line “I feel summer creepin in/ and I’m Tired of this town again.”
Its a great song for a hot summer day.
P.S. Tom Petty is really good at looking creepy.
