24. "You Wreck Me"
Petty used an array of musicians on Wildflowers. Still, the Heartbreakers' pulse beats strong, especially on "You Wreck Me," which was co-written by Mike Campbell. "Rick [Rubin] suggested this song that Mike had played him," Petty said at the time. "And I thought, 'Man, this sounds just like the Heartbreakers about 1980' – that style [that tells you] exactly who that is. So I got into it, to do a nostalgic song – 'All right, we'll go as far back as high school.'" Sentimentality aside, its ragged riffs fit with the alt-rock Nineties too.
