"Take It Like A Man" is a song by Canadian electronic group Dragonette, from their debut studio album, Galore (2007). The track was released as the second single from the album. The single received only minor success, even though it was released on so many formats. It peaked at #112 in the UK Singles chart.

Critical Reception[edit]

Overall, the song received mostly positive reviews. Jonathan Keefe of Slant magazine noted and complimented the song's complicated D/S dynamics, matched against a sugary, playful melody.[1] Heather Pheres of allmusic compared the song to previous works of Gwen Stefani, and new age rock band The Killers.

Music Video[edit]

The music video for the track was directed by Ben Taylor, and premiered on Dragonette's official YouTube channel on June 26, 2007.[2] Dragonette described the video as "very saucy".[3] The video is made to look like the set of a porno from the 1970s.
