Autoharp: Cherry Bomb

One of the four songs with autoharp to chart in the Top 10 was John Mellencamp’s “Cherry Bomb.” Released as a single from the 1987 album “Lonesome Jubilee,” “Cherry Bomb” charted at #8 on the Hot 100, #12 on the Adult Contemporary chart, and as #1 selection on the Mainstream Rock chart.

While the video of “Cherry Bomb” shows Mellencamp playing the autoharp on the song, it was actually played by Larry Crane. Crystal Taliefero sings the female vocal part on the tune.
