    My favorite song is Jack and Dianne (though I was raised listening and loving all of his songs). My parents were killed 17 years ago when I was 7 years old. I remember playing Jack and Dianne at the funeral because the lyrics we just so synonymous to their love and life. Growing up, Dad implanted it in us that we were a Hoosier family and IU basketball was almost a second religion. Which is where he’s from. My mom was the ultimate John Mellencamp fan though, so I have his heart-styled emblem in my tattoo I got for her. Needless to say, John Mellencamp holds a very big part of my heart.

    I love every song on the Lonesome Jubilee album. During Christmas my sister and I will just start singing Empty Hands. We know all the words! We also like to tell people we are in the Check It Out video.

  3. Rita Cook says:

    Jackie Brown

    My favorite John Mellencamp songs would have to be a toss up between three tunes. Pink houses due to the imagery and story telling Introduced by what I believe is one of the greatest guitar riffs of all time that simply shows less is more in a great song sometimes. The other two, minutes to memories and small town, will always have a spot near and dear to my heart as while I was stationed away from my Hoosier home during my time in the US Air Force whenever I would turn on these songs they would cure the homesick heart of a kid who was out on his own for the first time in his life and craved for the simple pleasures of his Midwest lifestyle. I also have a personal tradition of blasting Small Town as loud as it can go in my car whenever I venture down to beautiful Bloomington Indiana. Even if I don’t win the tickets thanks for letting me talk up some of my favorite songs from one of the USA’s greatest song writers and a true inspiration to myself.

    Fav John M songs…wow! It’s hard to pick, the best thing about his music is tbere is a song to fit every emotion or mood you may be in at the moment. I have to say “The Authority song should be my life theme song, (and man has that caused me some grief), but who can’t put Jack and Diane on the list…the whole Scarecrow Album, and you can’t sing “I Saw You First” and not smile. Ok…now I gotta head to Spotify and pull up my JM playlist and groove for a while!

    “Ain’t Even Done With The Night”

  7. Pamela Brown says:

    Here are some of my favorites that aren’t always played a lot on the radio:

    -Minutes to Memories (My favorite)
    -Jackie Brown
    -Your Life is Now (The favorite song for my grown daughter and I–“Would you teach your children to tell the truth…?”)
    Actually just played it 2 of these songs last night on TouchTunes.
    I took my daughter to see Coug when she was just 3 years old. She is 34 now!
    She knew almost all of the words to many of JCMs songs when she was just old enough to talk 🙂

    I could go on and on with favorites. I’m a HUGE fan and have been for years.
    I would be honored to be able to attend this special concert.

    Thanks!

    Pam

    Ain’t even done with the night would have to be my favorite! Timelessly relatable song about young love! Never gets old.

  10. Timothy M. Wickham says:

    Jack and Diane: My wife and I were kindergarten sweethearts and even dated in High school. It took me 48 years to figure out I had never been ‘In Love’ until that gal came back into my life. that song reminds us so much of our youth and we sing it together whenever we hear it on the radio. Thanks so much.
