Tom Petty’s Full Moon Fever contains 12 tracks. Truth be told, ranking 12 tracks shouldn’t be a terribly difficult task. However, when it comes to ranking the songs from Full Moon Fever, there’s just one problem: There isn’t a weak song on this classic album.

Of course, this is a fact that many fans have realized in the 35 years since its release. While it’s something that I personally have known for years as well, it wasn’t until I literally sat down with the album that I discovered a newfound appreciation for a work I already loved.

After some intense internal struggle, here are all 12 songs from Full Moon Fever ranked.
