Flashback Friday - John Cougar Mellencamp

John Cougar Mellencamp - born October 7, 1951 (wow, that makes him 60 - time flies). He'll always be John Cougar to me. He's known for his heartland rock, his passionate songs about the plight of the ordinary man and he's one of the founders of Farm Aid.

I always just loved his music, his sexy voice and thought he was hot as all get out and that's back in the 80's people. Lol. He's had stamina too - minds out of the gutter - I mean he's still around making music, and seriously, how many of us that were around in the 80's didn't know who "Jack & Diane" were or that it "Hurts So Good". I'm pretty sure he was one of my first concerts and I still love the man. Johnny was cool before cool was cool. :D
And of course I posted too many, don't you know me by now? In the realm of TMI - I'm pretty sure John is the one who started my nose fetish but was overtaken by Jared Leto's cute little nose. Lol.

For my BFF, Dawn, because we shared this lovely man back then. Ha. Not in that way though.

Break-out hit - before he figured out how to NOT fight his pretty hair. Lol.

Oh gosh. He was just a baby in this one.






Oh hell, yes. I forgot he had the long hair for a while. *swoons* (1987)

Oh, man. Do I ever want his hair.


"Pink Houses" live at Farm Aid 1987. Fabulous live video. I think I'm in love again.
(I know this one's bigger but the quality is just so great)

I'm including this one too - then I always know where to find it. He's so fabulous in these Farm Aid vids.


  1. Thank you so much for some Mellencamp on a Friday night. So many memories listening to him together and going to his concerts, tring to dance to his videos!

  2. That's one of the best things about doing these flashbacks - the memories. And Johnny gave us some good ones. He was always awesome and still is. But man, that hair kills me. Lol.

  3. Your Flashback Friday's always bring back lot's of good memories. Especially since I was in high school when he was really getting popular.

    Your Flashback Friday's also make me realize how old I am now. :D
