A great track 7 from Tom Petty's brilliant album Full Moon Fever. It's a quintessential tune about living in the 80's in California, with lyrics as shallow as Cher, chords as easy as a valley girl, and three minutes of sing along-able fun. It's a nice upbeat song wedged in between two equally perky--almost poppy--tunes on an album that should be in everyone's car.

Things I enjoy are the sweetly blended backing vocals, the laid-back strumming pattern, and the way even the minor chords sound happy. It's by no means his best song, but it's not his worst, either. Worth a listen by any means.

Ahhhhh,

My sister got lucky,
married a yuppie,
took him for all he was worth.
Now she's a swinger,
dating a singer,
and I can't decide which is worse.

Aw, but not me, baby,
I've got you to save me.
Yer so bad; best thing I ever had.
In a world gone mad, yer so bad.

My sister's ex-husband
can't get no lovin',
walks around dog faced and hurt.
Now he's got nothin'
head in the oven,
and I can't decide which is worse.

Aw, but not me, baby,
I've got you to save me.
Yer so bad; best thing I ever had.
In a world gone mad, yer so bad.

Ah, Yer so bad; best thing I ever had.
In a world gone mad, yer so bad.
