Average points: 4.71 (Reviews: 38)
Sehr guter R.O.C.K. Song aus 1985....aber -1 es ist ein bisschen zuviel... "What I Like about You" von The Romantics..... Nach "John Cougar", und "John Cougar Mellencamp" ist dieser song "composte" durch "John Mellencamp"......
S.O.U.L. in the USA ... und ich wäre dabei, so weniger.
# 2 (natürlich in the USA) Anfang 1986.
Das rockt so richtig schön los! Schade, dass man nichts mehr von ihm hört.
super rocker vom mellencamp!
Guter schöner rockiger Song, der Laune macht. Die Instrumentierung, dabei besonders der Bass und der Refrain gefallen mir sehr gut, das Solo ist auch nicht schlecht. Aufgerundete 6.
Dieser Song fegt vom Feinsten und macht einfach Spass. Ist in dieser Art die Ausnahme auf dem "Scarecrow"-Album von 1985, wo melancholische Songs vorherrschen (die aber auch stark sind). Da setze ich die 6*-Serie gerne fort.
Was habe ich den Song damals geliebt, Yeah!
Sehr munter...
John C.M. rockt und rollt und das gekonnt wie immer
fand ich jetzt eher nicht so dolle
Nice tribute to Mitch Ryder hidden away in the verses!
sehr erfrischend
prima R.O.C.K. nummer zeg!!!
Ein klassiker!

... und beim Konzert am Donnerstag letzter Woche in Stuttgart war es ein mehr als würdiger Abgang.

classic rock track
Cool song.
der zweite Springsteen
Geht auf den Geist.
... sehr gut ...
Peaked at #18 in Australia.

Double A-sided with 'Under The Boardwalk'.
i like it and although it is incredibly catchy, it isn't as likeable to me as most of his other singles.
Dieses beschwingte Rockstück ist mir jedenfalls lieber als Born In The U.S.A. – abgerundete 4.5…

#67 im Mai 1986 in UK…
Rock Music made in the United States of America - hinterlässt keine bleibenden Spuren. Gut ists nichtsdestotrotz.
ein ordentlich vorwärts treibender Rocktitel mit einer anständigen Portion Biss, der wiklich gut abgeht - dazwischen hört man eine "Wild Thing-Flöte", also das müssen hier schon 5 Sterne sein...!
Ja, eine ungemein schnittige Sache ist das....

Knappe 5.
6 stars
▒ Een gave, ondergewaardeerde rockplaat, uit april 1985 door de nu inmiddels 62 jarige Amerikaanse rockzanger en gitarist: "John Cougar Mellencamp" !!! Half maart 1986 wist hij ook in Nederland de hitlijsten te halen, echter zonder groot suc6 !!! Ik ga persoonlijk toch voor de volle bak !!! (NL Tip 30: 7 wk / # 4) ☺!!!
Gut, der Song. Nur die einfältige Arbeit des Schlagzeugers nervt. 5-6, ich bin gnädig.
Ja, ist knapp gelungen. 4-
R.O.C.K. in the USA.

Gute Nummer, und ich pflichte User Der_Nagel bei: weniger nervig als "Born In The USA" vom Boss.

Fazit: gute 4.
vette song
leider nicht mein Ding
Sehr gut
Eine richtige Hymne. Super gemachter Rocker !
Zeer lekkere rockplaat

Wenn ich diesen Song höre, dann kommt mir auch Bruce Springsteen in den Sinn.
