"That's What I Like" is a song by Jive Bunny and the Mastermixers. It was the second single from the album just entitled The Album and was released in late 1989. The medley achieved success in many European countries, where it was a top ten hit, but was a relative failure in the U.S.

Background and structure[edit]

Father and son team Andy and John Pickles repeated the formula which had taken their record "Swing the Mood" to number one a few months previously. This time using "Hawaii Five-O" by The Ventures from the TV series Hawaii Five-O as the recurring melodic hook in the record. It was the act's second UK number-one hit and stayed at the top for three weeks in October 1989.

The mix includes the following songs:
