19. "Even the Losers"
"We smoked cigarettes, and we stared at the moon," Petty sings over Mike Campbell's chiming guitar in this penetrating anthem. The song's writing was something of a magic act. "That's the weirdest one ever," Petty said. "I still have a hard time believing that happened, but it did. I had everything but the chorus. ... And I was bold enough to say, 'Let's cut this thing.' But I had no idea what I was going to sing when I got to that point. And, boom, divine intervention – it just came out. ... I'm not even going to question where that came from."
