This morning I found myself singing along to “Funky Cold Medina” on the radio and it hit me: this song is totally about roofies. A love potion for the ladies? Um, thanks Tone Loc for advocating the use of date rape drugs.
I loved this song when I was 11 and now it’s a little disconcerting to realize I listened to it in the car on the way to school all the time. Were my parents that tuned out that they didn’t catch on? Apparently.
If you’ll excuse me I need to go listen to my old New Kids on the Block tapes and figure out what “Hangin’ Tough” was really all about.
