Little known fact: I went through a serious Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers phase when I was about 13. For some reason, I’ve spent much of the week revisiting some of their older stuff, with this song making a repeat appearance. It’s a song that inspires a delicious sort of restless energy. Immediately makes you want to dance and is perfection on a road trip. Drop the windows and turn it to 11 — you’ll see. The fact that it was written in and inspired by the San Fernando Valley – no, all that University of Florida stuff is an urban legend – the place where I spent my formative years, is the perfect icing for my nostalgia cake.
