~ Really late nights ~

Somewhere along the way, I ended up with a mixtape of things I had recorded off of the radio, and this was one of them. While it was a classic rock station from back when I was in high school, this particular mix included a whole bunch of pretty mellow tunes that were good for very late nights over the summers when Headbanger’s Ball had already ended, and I was winding down to actually get to sleep. It’s far from Mellencamp’s best tune, but it fit very nicely with that playlist, and has always found a place on my mellower mixes ever since then. There’s not a lot of specific nostalgia associated with this song other than that odd independent feeling of those 2:00 a.m. unconstrained bedtimes
