Getting Lucky

I would never suggest that Setting Sun's cover of "You Got Lucky" is better than Tom Petty's original, but I am fond of it. The tone matches the lyrics here -- it feels more vengeful than the original, because it's tough for Tom to sound sinister with those 80's keyboards backing him up.

hmm. i found the computer effects distracting and soulless... but i am biased -- tom's original is perfection.

Yes, I was not aware that this video foreshadowed his "The Postman" cameo, for I grew up without cable television...
