Tom Petty Muddy Waters I Can’t Be Satisfied

There’s something so perfect about that song that it haunts me. I think the lyrics are really kind of poetic – “I’m troubled/ I’m all worried mind/ Just can’t be satisfied/ Just can’t keep from crying.” It’s a haunting little song. I wish I could come up with something like that. [It’s primal on every level] and it’s just absolutely perfect. What would you have done any differently? His delivery is so beautiful. It’s really hard to dissect these things, but that one is one I come back to again and again.

Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers’ new album, Mojo, arrives June 15. The band’s summer tour begins June 1st at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO.

  1. I find it funny that Petty says, “I wish I could come up with something like that.” I think he’s done a pretty good job at writing great songs.
