Song of the Day #2,897: ‘Too Much Ain’t Enough’ – Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers

petty_youre_gonna_get_itI love me some Tom Petty.

Recently I bought several of Petty’s early albums at bargain basement prices on Amazon, more as a show of support than anything. None of those albums live up to his best work — Damn the Torpedoes, Full Moon Fever, Southern Accents and Wildflowers — but they are all thoroughly listenable.

Those albums include debut Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, which is worth buying for ‘Breakdown’ and ‘American Girl’ alone, and sophomore effort You’re Gonna Get It!, from which today’s Random SOTD hails.

The best known track on this album is ‘Listen to Her Heart’ but the whole record rocks.

[Verse 1]
Looks like you got a little more to lose
Now little more at stake
I see you had a hard time
Living with the change
You got me on the line
Now trying to call your bluff
But you just won’t be satisfied
Too much ain’t enough
It ain’t enough, it ain’t enough[Verse 2]
Yeah, you’re standing by the telephone
Waiting for the word
And ever since that bathroom scene
There’s been a slight concern
I’m trying to make this easy baby
You seem to like things rough
You just can’t be satisfied
Too much ain’t enough [x3]

[Bridge]
Come on baby I’m down on my knees
Guess some little pill just can’t be pleased

[Verse 3]
Little miss queen of hearts you are a strange thing
Why you want to make so vague
I’m wandering through this mess you made
To see what I can save
I’m living on the line now
Trying to call your bluff
But you just won’t be satisfied
Too much ain’t enough [x3]
