Lonely 'Ol Night and The Authority Song for me.  The latter has my favourite B&W music video of all time :)

Good poll!  Although I think it needs the choice "other"...

I picked "Crumbling Down" and "Rooty Toot Toot"  :)

I left out other so people wouldn't pick a 90s song

"Hurt So Good" and "The Authority Song". Unfortunately, I cannot stand "Jack and Diane" anymore. I've heard it since it's inception and I'm tired of it.

He had a lot of great songs back in the day, but "The Authority Song" is kind of an anthem of mine!

^ I love "Hurts so Good" too. I remember that a little bit from VH1 back in the day, just a catchy upbeat rock song. It's kinda the closest he ever got to party, arena style rock.

You know the funny thing about Mellencamp is that he actually sounded MORE 80s in the beginning, like with "I Need a Lover" and "Ain't Even Done With the Night" (when I got his Greatest Hits album in high school, I especially loved the latter song). As the decade actually progressed, his music became more simple guitar-oriented heartland rock.

I picked "Check It Out". The song makes me feel nostalgic.
