Radio 62, side B, track 10: “U Can’t Touch This” by MC Hammer

MC Hammer - U Can't Touch ThisOh, MC Hammer, what a way to end the week, huh?  I don’t even know what to say about this song.  It’s like writing commentary on air or gravity.  This song is just one of those fundamental laws of nature.  Whether you like it or not, this song is just an integral part of the world.  I, personally, love the hell out of it just as much as I did when it exploded onto the radio.  I’m pretty happy with myself that I was able to record this one when it was brand spankin’ new and we’d all first become enthralled with Hammer Time and Hammer Pants and the MC Hammer cartoon where you had magical talking shoes.  It was a great time to be a kid with a radio and a cassette recorder, I’ll tell you that, MC Hammer.  I don’t know if U can touch this song or not, but you definitely can’t beat it.
