What a cool clip, where did you find it?
I just love this song, I always felt like it didn't get NEAR the
recognition and attention it deserved!
Thanks for sharing, love it!

The original version of "Teardrops Will Fall" came out in 1959, when Mellencamp was just 8 years old. Any idea of whether he liked the song as a kid or why he decided to record it?

Here is what the original sounded like:

My guess, knowing the lyrics, was that it was just a very appropriate song based on one of his marriages.  I actually had a hard time believing that he didn't write it himself because it hit so close to home.

Wow, now I'm really glad that I bought a new laptop on the weekend and was able to christen it with this video (haven't been able to see videos in the past).  Thanks Paula, what a great one!  Especially love that Miriam is fully appreciated for posterity, boy she's a huge talent and her playing constantly pulls my heartstrings.

Loved to see the band too....very fun.
