"Funky Cold Medina" is a hip hop song written by Young MC and performed by Tone Lōc, and was the second single from his album Loc'ed After Dark (1989).
The single was released on March 18, 1989 and rose to #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 in April 1989. It peaked on the UK Singles Chart at #13 the next month.
The song is about the adventures of Tone Loc after he receives a love potion called Funky Cold Medina from a friend. In the song, he first tests the potion on his dog, who immediately latches onto his leg and attempts sex with him.
Tone's encounters with people were also not what he intended; first he attracts a transvestite, then a woman intent on marriage from the very first date.
