I waited all day
drove out past the loop behind the high school
way off in the distance from your car
we walked

so I could show you the wildflowers
then we had ice cream

watched Immortal Beloved
made love with Bach playing

not too long after
you left one of the wildflowers on my car
and then promptly forgot my name

The second of two records that Tom Petty made which nearly broke up Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers for good. He had The Heartbreakers play on the album in the studio, and then toured without them. Previously, on Full Moon Fever, he made the record without them and then when his backing band pulled out he asked them to tour with him.

Really, a beautiful album. It has its share of hard rockers and soft love songs, but the bottom line is it's 15 tracks of Tom Petty goodness. The studio production wouldn't have been anything without the unique playing of Mike Campbell, Benmont Tench, and Howie Epstein, however.
