John Mellencamp, ‘Let it All Hang Out’ – Best Hidden Tracks

Subscribe to Ultimate Classic Rock on

Perhaps because it was much more light-hearted than the mostly brooding, introspective songs on his 1989 album ‘Big Daddy,’ John Mellencamp left the closing number, a cover of the Hombres‘ late ’60s rave-up ‘Let it All Hang Out,’ off the record’s tracklist.

Somewhere soon after, the singer (or someone at his record label) thought better of it, issuing the song as a single and even producing the ‘Beauty and the Beast go dancing’ video many of you are probably watching right now instead of reading any of these words.
