This is a rare Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers track on which Petty doesn't sing lead. His guitarist Mike Campbell
handles the vocals, his first time doing so.
Campbell writes the music for many of Petty's songs, and also co-wrote Don Henley's "The Heart Of The Matter
" and "The Boys of Summer
." In an interview with radio station WMMR, Campbell said: "For a long time I would just write music. And then I got so much of that and got so tired of writing music and waiting for someone to come up with something to sing on it that I just started doing it myself, just to amuse myself. And then I showed some stuff to Tom, he'd go, 'Wow, that sounds like me.' So I kept showing stuff to him. And then, when he heard that one, he thought, 'Well, you should just do that one, 'cause that'll fit on the record and you do it fine.' So that just sorta happened that way."
