I'm not much on mystery
Yeah, you gotta be careful
What you dream
I thought this might pass with time
Yeah, I thought I was satisfied

But oh baby let me tell you
I got a thing about you
Baby let me tell you
I got a thing about you
It don't matter what you say
It don't matter what you do
I, I, I got a thing about you

Somewhere deep in the middle of the night
Lovers hold each other tight
Whisper in their anxious ears
Words of love that disappear

But, oh honey let me tell you
I got a thing about you
Baby let me tell you
I got a thing about you
It don't matter what you say
It don't matter what you do
I, I, I got a thing about you

Baby, you own
Some strange control over me
Yeah, it's so wild
It hypnotizes me

But, oh honey let me tell you
I got a thing about you
Baby let me tell you
I got a thing about you
It don't matter what you say
It don't matter what you do
I, I, I got a thing about you

Please to explain: exactly why is this dude popular? Why?
 
Because a lot of people like listening to his music, buy his albums/CD's and pay to see him in concert. It's just music.

I honestly prefer Tom's solo albums over the Heartbreaker variants.
Mediocré at best. Yet...I am glad to hear this duster rather than the usual hit (s).
{#Devil_pimp}zesty! great song great album ! thanks for dusting this one off bill !
Like this song. Like Tom Petty. Emmylou Harris and Southern Pacific cover this tune and it's much easier on the ears.

His music matches his looks.....
i am luke warm toward tom petty, but his voice seems especially bad on this track. sorry.
In the immortal words of brother Charlie Daniels "He ain't good looking but he sure can play." A true American Rocker from the word go.
I - I - I got a thang about TOM. \:D/ The boy sure has a face for radio, though. #-o \jk
Among the greatest gifts that Florida has given to the world of pop rock, he is. :cool:
