Oh my lord
She give me chills and fever
Sends a signal
To my receiver
Hard livin' killing me
I need that woman to set me free

And I want her
I want her so much
Cause she got the lover's touch

Feel sold out
Water gettin' higher
Livin' on the shoreline
Starin' at the fire

And I want her
I want her so much
Cause she got the lover's touch

I hear her voice
When I'm all alone
Gives me comfort
So soft and low


And I want her
I want her so much
Cause she got the lover's touch

Not really Tom Petty RP's obsession.., Simply passion about music two human beings - no automatically computed commercial playlists - like to share with their listeners.
I'm not a Tom Petty's great fan, indeed.
Kind regards
Wow, what a bluesy groove. Like a slowed-down "Breakdown".

Too USA?  

I doubt it.  People in British Commonwealth and many other countries have been enjoying American blues and country-influenced modern pop and rock songs for more than a few decades now.

 This song is certainly not among his best, imo.
 
Oh I dunno I think it has a nice slow bluesy groove to it. I can see being in a smoky bar, nursing a glass of whiskey, and crying about the woman I lost, while on stage the singer is belting this out.

Normally it's OK but I PSDed away from it tonight. Definitely different for Tom.

Nina Simone? omg, I really thought so. I like it. 
Whoah...was it really Summer of '85 when I saw these guys play Red Rocks? I might be mistaken, but it seems that Dire Straits and Bob Dylan were also in that line-up. In any case, I liked the Mudcrutch stuff, but was so glad they put out this record. They ROCK as a group!
will never understand RP's obsession with Tom Petty.  It's tragic.

Wait, what?  Where did this groove tune come from?  Need to investigate this MOJO.  I can even handle Tom's voice on this.  Seems to match for a change.

I have a very hard time rating any song done by Tom Petty and Mike Campbell lower than a 9. I think of
Free Fallin',  I won't back down, You wrecked me babe and Runnin' down a dream, his solo work on Wild flowers, (although Campbell did the lead work) to some wonderful tunes on The Traveling Wilburys I and II and so, so much more. Campbell is one of the American guitarist greats, the guys leads are as good as R & R gets. I keep thinking I have to cherish anything the Heartbreakers do as if we get another album out of the group it will a surprise. Whenever I've been driving for 3-4 hours and want something to light me up, or just can't handle an album with 50% filler it's Petty to the rescue. Tom and co. are solid gold.

 
Great words well stated, SOB  (Sincere Or-nery Bard)!  Petty & Co. rate 10's pretty consistently
What a lush and succulent groove.

Great song but what a drop in speed from the Black Keys. Feels like I just hit a brick wall. Smoother transition next time please.

Miss you so much, Cynaera...

love this song...
 
as other commenters have noted, this is a really strong album.

Ohhhhhhhhh, man.  Dis shit is GOOD!
Sweet, slow, gentle, persistent ... just like a lover's touch.  Onomatopoeia?
Surprisingly strong album from a band deeeeeep into their career.....

I like Petty, but I'm not a fanatic, he has a bunch of decent stuff.  I have to say that this album is GREAT!  It may be his best.  An interesting blend of songs and sounds.  And just about every song has a great guitar lick.  RP introduced this album to me and for that I thank you.
Petty never strays too far from his roots, but if he did, this album would be a return to them. Gotta love it.
PURE CLASS!

Mojo is one of Tom's best albums EVER!

And this song fits in perfectly.  Love it.
Cool
need this
I like Tom Petty, just can't his voice, today, in THIS song.
Simplicity at its best ........... {#Notworthy}
I love the languid pace of this lazy gem.
Always the masters of understatement. Great - a breath of fresh air.
Magnificent.  And doesn't this song convey the atmosphere one wants from a lover's touch?  Onomotopeia, sorta.

It's a fine body of work.  The album was released on Blu-Ray disc, if you have that capability.  With the DTS-HD Master Audio, theoretically, it's the sound of the master tape, what they heard in the studio.

Let this be the start for a great set of songs for those ~40.

You pretty much satisfied the 50/65-group
during the past 30+ minutes.
No so afflicted by this excellent and soulful rendition, but when RP dials up a set of tunes that are just too vanilla or lightweight for my peculiar tastes, I switch over to Creamy Radio for a while ( creamyradio.com ) A somewhat younger orientation on the playlist, and plenty of daring experiments. Pretty soon, however, it hip-hop and bubblegums at me until I return home to RP. Try it, some good new rock music aired there.

Probably out there on satellite radio already.  They have a channel for every classic rock guy born it seems.

Could we play a tribute song for Gary Moore; RIP?  This reminded me of him a bit...
In a way, I'm sorry these guys got so much airplay in the last decade — because THEY'RE GOOD.  They really are, and it's a shame that a few of their best tunes have hit my ears too many times.

Not his greatest maybe, but that beats many many other peoples best. 
It is bit of a grower, if you like Petty you'll like this IMO.

I'm over 40 and in no way want to be associated with this. Formulaic and uninspired.
A great band with an even greater singer, rock on.

I've been asked by the Urban English Coalition to inform you that it's "Imma." Two ms, no apostrophe. Said if you don't believe it, just go to Amazon and enter 'Imma' - just one word - in a search under the music category. Dude, er, I mean, Yo, Bro, if you're gonna walk the walk, ya gotta talk the talk.{#Rolleyes}

B O R I N G .
A good song for insomniacs! 
Sounds like he might have a new producer.. I've never heard his voice processed like that before. I like this, more bluesy than SoCal rock.
Wow, for a moment, I thought it was still the previous song.  What a transition!
...you know, i'm surprised to be not as impressed by this album as i expected to be, given my reaction to the individual tracks i'd heard here on radio paradise...on reflection, i think mojo is a case of its parts proving greater than the whole...

...several of the individual tracks are outstanding, taken in isolation, which suggests that the source album should be a work of inspired sessions, but in actuality it comes across as vaguely derivative, even a presumtuous affectation, by comparison to the genuine article it seems to imitiate...don't misunderstand me, it's not bad by any means, it's just sort of - eh, really, homogenised when listened straight through...

...i may have had a more positive reaction if mojo's individual tracks hadn't built such anticipation in my mind beforehand, but really?..i guess i just don't go for them turnip greens...
Not so bad, eh!?

Yup ....I'm thinking the same.

I keep doing a double take with the songs on this album because they rock, and they sound like Tom Petty, and I'm thinking, jeez, how old is that guy... this is an amazing album!  These guys still rock.

Here is a fun story about  14 year old kid who met the guitarist from the band:

Oh how I wish it were Friday............ wait, I believe I saw a glitch in the matrix; someone please give me the red pill so I can awake from this horribly mundane existence within the matrix of cubes.

If not for Radio Paradise, I couldn't survive this monotony!

My wife bought me MOJO for our anniversary, I highly recommend buying it.

I've found over the years that if I like a new TP album on the first listen, then I don't tend to like it as much over time.  HOWEVER, if it takes a few listens to catch the vibe of the album, then it usually indicates that album will become a "classic" TP album, at least to my ears.

MOJO definitely takes a few playings, but I'm really diggin' it.
Tommy, you do have the lovers touch.. I love this   Lets see where is that iTunes link!
Every time I hear a tune off this album I like it . Just good music!
Pops Staples?  {#Cool}
Sounding Good!
This is far better than the tired 'classic' rock, laziness that I"m used to from TP.
kind of liking this new album.  Little more blues, little more jazz.  Go Tom!

Hi Bill.  Did you know that when you search 'Radio Paradise' on the new Shoutcast directory (they just released an updated search beta) you don't get Radio Paradise?  You have to Show More at the bottom and you're the 11th match.  #1 is Radio Vlva (Vulva?) BG.

Just thought you should know..

{#Doh}
Swank!
