CommentsRecorded at: Sound City, Van Nuys, CA and M.C. Studios, Los Angeles, CA. Mixed at: A&M Studios, Hollywood, CA (MCA Records) "Bob Dylan and I wrote that," Tom says. "I was living in an apartment at the Sunset Marquis and Bob came around and wanted to write a few songs for an album he was doing. He took that song 'Got My Mind Made Up' and rewrote the words, and the same day we wrote 'Jammin' Me.' It was mostly written while he was reading the entertainment section. That's where Eddie Murphy and Vanessa Redgrave and all those people came into it. Those were Bob lines which I've taken shit for for years. It was a good song about the overload of information, how frightening satellites and those things were to us at the time." Tom laughs. "We both felt overloaded. We wrote it to a slightly different chord progression, then Michael came up with this great progression, that great riff, and I took it without really asking Bob and put it to this different music. Later on I played it back to him and he said, 'Yeah, it works.'" The promotional music video was directed by Jim Lenahan.
