A true standout in the Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers catalog, "Here Comes My Girl" has aged possibly better than any other work from the late '70s. Built on a melodic combination of hard R&B and Byrds-inspired folk, the song rises and falls with an undeniable grace and power. The verses, which are based on a simple, two-chord pattern, find Petty as more of a narrator rather than a singer, putting all of his doubts and fears in the hands of true love. This is all told in a combination of toughness and vulnerability that is truly beguiling. A rightful inclusion on the Through the Years anthology as well as the Playback box set, this song is indeed one of Petty's evergreens.
