iTunes Editors’ Notes

1982’s American Fool catapulted Indiana’s John Cougar into the pop mainstream after years of dubious material and artistic struggle. With 1983’s Uh-Huh, Cougar began reclaiming and defining his identity as more than just a sassy, snarky rock n’ roll singer. He added back his real last name and recorded an album that spoke simply and directly from his heart and mind. “The Authority Song” took its message from the Bobby Fuller Four’s “I Fought the Law” and its guitar sound from the Rolling Stones, marrying the two to an irresistible rhythm. “Play Guitar” and “Crumblin’ Down” worked similarly, capitalizing on Mellencamp’s tough exterior and unfancy rock arrangements. But it was the Springsteen-like acoustic number, “Pink Houses,” that solidified Mellencamp’s image as a voice for Middle America. With the genuine simplicity of an ageless folk song, Mellencamp laid out the modest goals and sad, awful truth of the working class without pity and with a dose of celebration. With Uh-Huh, Mellencamp found the perfect balance between his social concerns and the rock n’ roll of his youth.

Customer Reviews

This Album Rocks!

I am an Indiana Boy that really did not take any serious noctice of John Mellencamp until I purchased this album in 1983. Sure I had seen him live in 1980 and his previous album "American Fool' had a couple of good tracks put this album in my mind is his best album. It is filled with serious attitude and represented to me what other music lacked during the early 1980's and that was some real Rock N' Roll. Granted some of the tracks such as "Jackie O" and "Golden Gates" may not rock out they still represent how I felt as a 23 year old blue collar worker. "Crumblin' Down", "Authority Song", "Play Guitar" and "Serious Bussiness" are straight up Rock N Roll at it's best. Then there is "Pink Houses" which may be the one track that John Mellencamp will always be remembered for. That Song has always inspired me to be more compassionate to my fellow man. If you buy any single John Mellencamp album then this is the album to buy!

He Stood Up To Reclaim His Identity Here...

He also stood up to President Reagan's PR goons, who tried to highjack the song "(Little) Pink Houses".
