Once Upon a Time

Funky Cold Medina


If this song was released today, I bet it would be very controversial upon release. Grown up me would probably be like “Really, this is promoting terrible things”, but young me knew all the darn lyrics.

“Funky Cold Medina” is a hip hop song 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 where it went platinum, selling over one million copies.

The song title refers to a fictional aphrodisiac, which is presented in the accompanying video as a steaming potion. He first tests the drink on his dog, who immediately latches onto his leg and attempts to arouse himself sexually. Lōc’s subsequent attempts to use the drug backfire on him; first he targets a transvestite, and then a woman who becomes immediately intent on marriage (recounting his experiences on the game show Love Connection). In the end, Lōc concludes the concoction is simply not worth the trouble (and the video shows him regretfully emptying the bottle into a storm drain).
