Radio XLII, side A, track 12: “What I Like About You” by Michael Morales

Michael Morales - What I Like About YouOh, Michael Morales, so I recorded this one again, eh?  Hm.  As you know, I was more than a little disappointed the first time this song came up on my track list and I thought this was the original by The Romantics.  This time I’m also disappointed, but disappointed in myself.  I understand recording this song once, Michael Morales, because I didn’t have it in my collection yet, so yeah, had to be done.  But twice?  I don’t know, dude.  No offense, but this version is what you’d expect to hear if you were on a riverboat tour or at a second-rate amusement park and the entertainment was provided by musicians who desperately wanted to make it but ended up performing on a riverboat tour or at a second-rate amusement park.  No offense to any of them, either, everybody’s gotta eat, but I will say those kind of performances do make me more than a little sad since it’s clearly not what they thought they’d be doing with their lives because if they were close to doing what they wanted with their lives they’d at least be singing and dancing to their own original music and not performing a sanitized, pale comparison of an original classic.  Like what you’re doing with this song, Michael Morales.

Again, no offense meant, Michael Morales, and hey, obviously I thought it was great at the time since I recorded it more than once.  But to be fair to myself, I don’t know that I’d yet heard the original.  I think maybe I’m going to shut up now, Michael Morales, because I feel like I’m being unnecessarily mean to you and this song.  Besides, you were able to record this and get it playing on the radio, which is much more than I’ve ever been able to do, so yeah, you’re right, I AM a jerk.  I appreciate you not throwing that in my face, Michael Morales.  It’s what I like about you.
