INTERESTING FACTS (a la wikipedia)
- “You Don’t Know How It Feels” reached #1 on the Billboard Album Rock Tracks chart and #13 on the Billboard Hot 100.
- MTV and many radio stations aired a censored version of “You Don’t Know How It Feels,” reversing the word “joint” in “let’s roll another joint” â€” although a version replacing the word “roll” with “hit” was also made.
- The music video won the MTV Video Music Award for Best Male Video in 1995.
- The song is sometimes mistakenly called “Roll Another Joint” on P2P search engines because of the aforementioned line.
- Wildflowers is the second solo album by American musician Tom Petty and the first released by Petty after signing a contract with Warner Bros. Records (where he had recorded as part of the Traveling Wilburys), as well as the first of three albums produced by Rick Rubin.
- The album was not credited to the Heartbreakers because, in Petty’s words, “Rick (Rubin) and I both wanted more freedom than to be strapped into five guys.” Freedom notwithstanding, Petty chose to use most of his regular band as session players, demonstrating his comfort with that format.
