Just got through watching the video of John Cougar Mellencamp’s “Hurts So Good” on TV. The swaggering little brat obviously thought he was pretty cool stuff back then, when in fact, he was beggin” for a swift kick in the behind. Which only makes his invigorating new opus, The Lonesome Jubilee, all the more satisfying.
