John Mellencamp--Lonely Ol' Night
Well the Carnival has made its annual pilgrimage to Podunk this weekend, so we felt we'd dig into the archives a bit and dig up one of the best little tunes all about hanging out that there is out there.
Mellencamp regularly records the trials and tribulations of small town life in his music and none was better than his hit off of Scarecrow.
From the thrill of the midway rides, through the wandering of the downtown streets the song captures the atmosphere at hand quite well.
With it's driving rock and roll feel and fast moving video edits, the video, a hand held black and white examination of small town life became the staple of the video channels through the late eighties.
For Podunkians still soggy from their weekend trip to the land of the carnies it will bring back the memories of the midway (though we must admit our version is a tad , er smaller than this), for those from afar here's a chance live the Podunkian life vicariously through our presentation.
