Top 20 Tom Petty (& those damn Heartbreakers) songs

trends and all.

The most under-rated American songwriter ever has quite a resume of gems. Pick'em.

Learning to Fly
American Girl
Apartment Song
You Wreck Me
Even The Losers
A Higher Place
Running Down A Dream
Down South
Yer So Bad
You Don't Know How It Feels
Don't Do Me Like That
Rockin' Around (With You)
Time To Move On
Free Fallin'
The Waiting
Big Weekend
Wild One, Forever
I'll Feel a Whole Lot Better (yeah, I know, it's a Byrds/Gene Clark song, so fucking sue me. It's 12 string guitar/vocal harmony glory at it finest.)

And Mike Campbell might just be the most under-rated guitar twanger ever.

How can you not include 'Refugee' in a list of Petty's best?

In no particular order:

Learning To Fly
Free Fallin'
Into The Great Wide Open
Don't Come Around Here No More
The Waiting
Running Down A Dream
Room At The Top
I Won't Back Down
Don't Do Me Like That
Something In The Air(ok, he didn't write it)
You Got Lucky
American Girl
Don't Do Me Like That

I can't get to 20.

I'll add:

Zombie Zoo
Blue Sunday
House in the Woods
Don't Fade on Me

I'm not going to repeat songs that have already been added. Although really, I'd add all of Wildflowers if I could. Plus most of The Last DJ. But anyway. I'm going to see Tom Petty on Sept. 8th Excitement abounds!
