A tipster recently let us know that Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. covered Whitney Houston’s 1987 nugget “I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me),” quite possibly my wife’s favorite song in the entire history of the universe, at a recent Bowery Ballroom show. As it turns out, Dale have been covering the track live for at least a few weeks, and somebody in Denver caught pretty good video of it. Listen to the maybe-ironic cover and marvel at the duo’s garish jackets below.

In related news, the “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” video is way better than I remember it being.
