John J. Mellencamp (born October 7, 1951), previously known as Johnny Cougar, John Cougar, and John Cougar Mellencamp, is an American musician, singer-songwriter, painter, actor, and film director. He is known for his catchy, populist brand of heartland rock, which emphasizes traditional instrumentation. Mellencamp rose to fame in the 1980s while "honing an almost startlingly plainspoken writing style" that, starting in 1982, yielded a string of Top 10 singles, including "Hurts So Good", "Jack & Diane", "Crumblin' Down", "Pink Houses", "Lonely Ol' Night", "Small Town", "R.O.C.K. in the U.S.A.", "Paper in Fire", and "Cherry Bomb". He has amassed 22 Top 40 hits in the United States. In addition, he holds the record for the most tracks by a solo artist to hit number one on the Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart, with seven. Mellencamp has been nominated for 13 Grammy Awards, winning one. His latest album of original songs, Sad Clowns & Hillbillies, was released on April 28, 2017 to widespread critical acclaim. Mellencamp has sold over 30 million albums in the US and over 60 million worldwide.

As time goes on and I remember "Break me off some" remember what "WHO"? said...and I do, while knowing that no one is perfect, and that ", it aint easy..." but that isn't true..." " can't just come in here and tell me my name, don't even know...but if it came to this..." he said, "I would be happy to haul off my rear, baby...knowing there's someone out there who cares...and my dear Reisa Gerber, who KNOWS me." /cd/review/uh-huh/mistake

I will finish "abominable snowman that rock and roller
decided decided to throw away into the rain and the "come on, johnny one note," I know who you are!"
as he sleeps inside the tee...pee groping,
for nothing but his own desire-
i cannot get his horrifying
tax return-
the one that stinks,man,
"right out loud!"
I have to sit there, honey,
"flies are better than vinegar!"
San Fernando Valley,
what she got "all over her hands"!
Seems to me he "went through
"knock, knock,knock!"
hooray for "whoever"...bluejay way!
Reisa Gerber january 20, 2013
p.s. please delete the second abominable snowman
after this first one?!

I asked for posting in the twice recently in two selections and I am sure it has
probablee has to do with money shortage....but i don't know...all it was was
a question for county support in near and close locations, to scout up to I honestly am something like this...""will you leave me alone?? I support you!!!" in
regard to a local m--u-r-d-e-r...and Although I did not
do anything, I will bring up
the support that a "s-p-e-c-i-a-l-i-s-t-!" in my fam-ill-lee...feels capable of handling all by her c-r-e-p-e...I ask her, specifically and not mentionable by name,
to remove herself from the
list of those who "have the legal limit to the snow here-"and who "have the rights to decide who a "recent c-o-m-m-i-t-m-e-n-t"
of actual "m-u-r-d-e-r" in our "neighborhood" here in
middletown in new york,and keep her opinions private...or "is she specially allowed"?
That is called a jury, my dear.

let's relax and smile, cuckoohead...mellonhead! crackers are so funny...i guess as cuttingly cute as hard cheddar orange...even though blondie likes beach chairs with paisley and white summer blouses while her hubba bubba plays dance
through you...tomorrow i do
not know what i will do because it dam hurts me so.
you take care and know that that you did good and you
did what you had to.
however, it hurts...a very, very much, worth an apple,
little ante...

this was decided after several of my considerations...other arrangements, such as where and when and how..
supervisor....these are the songs I so badly wish to
back john's up with-
human wheels; funny french shoes;
when jesus left birmingham;
john mellencamp 1998; your
life is now-
freedom's road-song performed-"someday..."
and "iam just a black man,I
have no history, I was brought up in east chicago, and I grew up on the stage-
UH-HUH-crumbling down...
there is more, of course, but the idea is the actual come-on....john and his people-do you think...maybe...someday? as reisa's mailing address
november 28, 2012...and, yes,c-r-a-c-u-k-u-p.

Reisa GerberApr 20, 2012

Ever see this one...where a perfect stranger contends with your alibis and your life, and the people in it as though they were, and not even, your mother or your brother-in-law?
Okay,I can give you mother-in=law,okay?
But not all that much more...Even,
my mother, who wasn't exactly totally to blame for this summation to the crowds...surely an idea of reference, right?
"Nobody told us she was gonna work out this way" more brouchette, sweety..."If a picture paints a thousand words, then why can't I"
Back to the issue, here...
Let's go to the river and find some kind of depreciation here...I got a blackmagic woman...I got a blackmagic woman...
John Mellencamp trivia game...what is the keyword
for the unravelling of this verbal Mellencamp puzzle?...HINT...and we've just begun, watching it run...SHMATA.

Reisa GerberMay 17, 2011

When I truly think about this, I hear mother p...sayin' "it's not your affair, girl!" I'll spare john the dignity..."where have you been all my life?" I l.u.v. his music so, so much.... Thanks..the rue Reisa L. Gerber

Reisa L. GerberApr 22, 2011

Reisa L. GerberApr 21, 2011
