Top Ten Best Tom Petty Songs

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Even the Losers

Really? The only way this isn't in the top three is if most of the voters here were born after 1985. Listen to it once for the musicality; a second time for the lyric; a third time for the "Wow, this is my life's anthem! " epiphany to hit you.

"It was nearly last summer we sat on your roof we smoked cigarettes and we stared at the moon" Just the regulars guy anthem excellent song. - SOX3005

22 Change of Heart

Best. Petty song. Ever. So underplayed, so underrated. Classic Tom Petty sound, his unique whiny phrasing, and bittersweet lyrics. If you don't like this song, there's something wrong with you.

This song is fantastic. Catchy, with great guitar sound. Way underrated.

Tom petty really rocks on this song completely underrated

How is this not on the top ten at least?! 36 is ridiculous! This is considered one of his greatest songs! It's very calming and has an awesome guitar riff. Please bring this up higher!

Super riff, super song and super vocals from the great Tom Petty! love it - BrianScott01

This is by far Petty greatest work. I'm not sure if that's subjective though, cause quite honestly I don't know why I writing this on the internet, but oh well, here goes:
Put simply, this song saved my life, I was going through a bad breakup/rejection thing, and all these things where going around in my head, but then I listened to this song and it felt like it described so perfectly what was going on in my life, it made everything seem alright, everything seem worth it again, it made me want to live again.
Don't really think anyone on the internet wants to hear about my emotional problems or cares at all but really I just wanted to say how beautiful this song is and how much it means to me.

36 Saving Grace

This a great song. Come on! Let's bring it up to at least top 20

37 U Get Me High

39 All the Wrong Reasons
