    Petty recalled the recording of this song to Mojo magazine: "At the session George Harrison sang and played the guitar. I had a terrible cold that day, and George went to the store and bought a ginger root, boiled it and had me stick my head in the pot to get the ginger steam to open up my sinuses, and then I ran in and did the take.

    Runnin' Down a Dream

    Still one of the best music videos ever in my book.  Never get tired of this one.

    I wish Stevie Nicks and Tom would have done an entire album.
