Radio XVIII, side B, track 3: “You Got It (The Right Stuff)” by New Kids On The Block

New Kids On The Block - You Got It (The Right Stuff)Oh, New Kids On The Block, you were the first band specifically put on Earth to vex junior high boys everywhere.  Oh, sure, there were bands like The Beatles and such, and yes, all right, it’s true that The Monkees were your earlier incarnation, that of a boy band hand-picked by a marketing department, but whatever, New Kids On The Block, the point is, you drove me and my fellow guys in junior high crazy.  Because the girls would NOT. . .STOP. . .TALKING ABOUT YOU!  Jordan this and Donny that. . .who cares already?!!?!?  And to make matters worse, I really loved your music, from the very first time I heard it, which was this song.  This would be the beginning of a beautiful love/hate relationship, New Kids On The Block. . .

“You Got It (The Right Stuff)”

The right stuff

First time was a great time
Second time was a blast
Third time I fell in love, now I hope it lasts
I can see it in your walk
Tell it when you talk
See it in everything you do, even in your thoughts

You got the right stuff

Baby

Love the way you turn me on

You got the right stuff

Baby

You’re the reason why I sing this song

Your first kiss was a sweet kiss
Second kiss had a twist
Third and your fourth kiss
I don’t wanna miss
I can see it in your walk
Tell it when you talk
See it in everything you do
Even in your thoughts

You got the right stuff

Baby

Love the way you turn me on

You got the right stuff

Baby

You’re the reason why I sing this song

All that I needed was you
In my life
You’re so riiight
And all that I wanted was you
You made all
Every one of my dreams come true

Oh oh oh-oh-oh
Oh oh oh-oh
Oh oh oh-oh-oh

The right stuff

Oh oh oh-oh-oh
Oh oh oh-oh
Oh oh oh-oh-oh

The right stuff

Girl

Yeah, baby, yeah

Ya know you got the right stuff

And girl

Yeah, baby

You know you know you
Got it, girl

<awesome New Kids On The Block jam>

All that I needed was you
Oh girl
You’re so riiight
And all that I wanted was you
You made all

You know what ya did

Oh oh oh-oh-oh
Oh oh oh-oh
Oh oh oh-oh-oh

The right stuff

Oh oh oh-oh-oh
Oh oh oh-oh
Oh oh oh-oh-oh

The right stuff

You got the right stuff

Baby

Love the way you turn me on

You got the right stuff

Baby

You’re the reason why I sing this song

  1. I also grew up in the era of the boy bands. They ruined it for me. How was I ever to compete with friggin’ Donny and Jordan and Nick Carter and Joey Fatone from ‘N Sync. I blame them for the reason I couldn’t get a date to the Prom. Thanks a lot, Fatone.

  2. […] no question.  I’ve already written about how most of us boys in junior high hated you, and I myself was conflicted.  Back then, we were all jealous of you because our female counterparts had it bad for you bunch […]
