Music Friday: "Rain on the Scarecrow"

Linked HERE is one of Mellencamp's finest songs.

I've always liked Mellencamp, but I've never bought many of his albums for some reason. Rain on the Scarecrow was one I purchased on cassette back when the cassette tape was the most prudent option. 

The scenery in this famous video reminds me a lot of where I live now, Coles County. And we're not that far away from Indiana, Mellencamp's home state. 

His recent album is a dark and brooding opus. It's a good one.
