Ain't That America

Here's my belated Fourth of July post.

John Cougar Mellencamp was one of my fave rock musicians back in the '80s. I always appreciated his sense of straightforwardness and honesty in his music.  His 1984 song "Pink Houses" is a wonderful tribute to America, both majestic and hopeful, yet also with a touch of melancholy.

Happy Birthday (belatedly) America, to all my readers in the U.S..
