John Mellencamp

One of the finest rock artists I’ve ever listened to is John Mellencamp. I first heard his songs way back in high school with titles like “Hurts So Good” and “Jack and Diane.” His album Scarecrow, released in 1985, cemented his stature as one of the most socially-conscious rock songwriters/singers of our lifetime! But it was his The Lonesome Jubilee album, released two years later, that got me convinced on the true importance of his musical artistry. The following three links feature three songs from that 1987 album: “Cherry Bomb,” “Paper in Fire” and “Check It Out.”
