Radio XLV, side B, track 12: “Cover Girl” by New Kids On The Block

NKOTB - Cover GirlOh, New Kids On The Block, look at that!  Two New Kids On The Block songs on one tape!  Both of them brand new and both of them wrapping up their respective sides!  Isn’t it great when a plan comes together?  Well, I didn’t actually plan it, but it’s still kinda fun in a geeky sort of way, and it’s also interesting to hear that you guys at this point had made #1 on The Phaser Countdown Five for 4 nights straight.  And you’d beaten out the likes of Young MC, Bon Jovi, Motley Crue and Alice Cooper to do it.  That’s some pretty stiff competition, and I think it speaks both to the power of this song as well as the power of teenage girls everywhere.  Certainly I wouldn’t have voted on this song as a self-respecting New Kids hater.  But of course I only hated you on the outside.  On the inside I was very much a fan.  In fact, I’m not going to completely commit to this because we’ve still got more of your songs coming up, but this may have been my favorite of your songs.  I think it mostly had to do with the guitar solo and the fun keyboard music, which really doesn’t have anything to do with you guys since I don’t think you actually played any instruments, but it was part of the song so it counts.  Also, I think I’ve always liked that it feels like a throwback to ’50s doo-wop and early rock and roll.  This sounds like something that could have been on a jukebox at some diner when my parents were kids, like something that girls in poodle skirts and guys with rolled-up jeans would dance to at a sock hop.  Whatever the reason I like it so much, the bottom line is that it’s a fantastic song and a great way to finish off a tape.  Now let’s see what Radio XLVI has in store for us!!!
