Medina Salahadin mY FunkY song

24 Aug

Funky Cold Medina” is a hip hop song written by Young MC, Michael L. Ross and Matt Dike,[1] and first performed by Tone Lōc. It was the second single from Lōc’s debut album Lōc-ed After Dark (1989). The single was released on March 18, 1989, and rose to #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 the following month. It peaked on the UK Singles Chart at #13 in May of that year.
The song title refers to a fictional aphrodisiac, which is presented in the accompanying video as a steaming love potion. The lyrics tell the tale of Lōc’s initially unsuccessful attempts to attract women. At the suggestion of a barman, he plies his intended with “that medina thing”. He first tests the drink on his dog, who immediately latches onto his leg and attempts to mate with him. Lōc’s subsequent encounters with women also backfire on him; first he attracts a transgender woman,[2] and then a woman intent on marriage from the very first date (recounting his experiences on the game show Love Connection).
After the song became popular, several different mixed drinks were created and named “Funky Cold Medina”.[3] Also, Lōc himself sang a parody of this song at the Epcot animatronic show, Food Rocks. In this show, he portrayed Fud Wrapper, a singing food wrapper, and sang “Always Read the Wrapper”
