John Mellencamp "Small Paradise" from the John Cougar album (1979)
John Cougar (titled Miami in Australia) is the fourth album by John Cougar. Released in 1979, following the Australian success of "I Need a Lover" from the previous year's A Biography (which did not receive a U.S. release), the album included the aforementioned track for U.S. audiences, as well as a re-working of A Biography's "Taxi Dancer."
"I Need a Lover", upon the release of this album, became a hit in the US as well as in Australia, where "Miami" was the album's first single and became his second Top 40 hit. "I Need a Lover" was subsequently covered by Pat Benatar on her album In the Heat of the Night. In the US, however, "Small Paradise" was released as a single in place of "Miami," but was not very successful.
All songs written by John Mellencamp.
