These old John Cougar Mellancamp are classic. Jack and Diane, Small Town, Pink Houses. Great songs. Brings you right back to the great decade that was the 1980s. Love this song. Always have, Always will. Timeless.

What a genuine dude. His heart shines through so many songs about real people, real issues, making positive change in the world, and fighting 'the man'. John Mellencamp sang without compromise & we love him for it!

MY FAVE SONG OF ALL TIME

Where boy named Sue comes up with this crap I will never know, it's a simple love song about a young couple - how that translates into football rape is beyond me
Report as inappropriate
Boy named Sue let us know what you get raped that might deserve an NFL player and a headline
