This is a very good rock song that has definitely stood the test of time and still sounds great to listen to for years after its original release (youtube has it listed as a 1982 release). The guitar riffs used in the song are very good, and the lyrics are very catchy and daring. The song pretty much seems to be about experiencing both pain and pleasure on a sexual level(via the use of lyrics where he is singing for his lover to make it hurt so good). This is one of my favorite songs by him. Another song of John Mellencamp's that comes close to being as daring as the "Hurts So Good" song is "Wild Night" where he sang a duet with Meshell Ndegeocello. The "Hurts So Good" song is going to be fun to listen to if you also happen to like John and Meshell's cover of "Wild Night".
