John Mellencamp’s New Song

 

Easy Target is the new political song by rocker John Mellencamp.

“Easy Target” features late-night, smoky-bar piano and an ornate string section, and Mellencamp delivers his grim lines in a dry croak. He sings about a world where everyone is on their own and no one is safe: “Easy targets all along the avenue/ Living here in sucker town, baby me and you/ Behind the bars to keep each other apart/ Easy targets, our country’s broken heart.”
