Radio XXXIXL, side B, track 4: “I Like It” by Dino

Dino - I Like ItOh, Dino, I’m tired and I’m cranky and I’m so tired and cranky that I don’t even feel like blogging, but I gotta tell ya, just like the last time I wrote about this little gem, I can’t help but feel at least a little bit of joy when I hear you sing “Get up on it”.  And that section where you’re whispering “Let’s do it” and “That’s nice” and you’re 100% serious about it, that’s pretty great, too.  There aren’t too many guys who could pull that off and be taken seriously, and while I don’t know that you’re one of those guys, I absolutely respect the amazing amount of confidence you have.  Hell, Dino, look at that picture of you in that vest with that hair and that shirt tucked into those jeans.  I actually just learned from one of my co-workers that that look is called a “Canadian tuxedo”, which is what I rocked for most of junior high.  And when I say rocked, I don’t mean rocked at all.  But I did wear those items.

Based on that picture of you, Dino, I have a feeling that our taste in clothes and hair products were actually not that dissimilar, but for some reason, I get the sense that you may have been more successful with the ladies.  Just a hunch.  I guarantee that I would have never been able to say “Get up on it” and actually have someone get up on it.

Get up on it!

See?
