I Really Like Him

Album: Man Of La Mancha (1965)

Songfacts®:

  • In this song, the word like really does mean like rather than anything stronger as it is sung by Sancho Panza in praise of Don Quixote.

    First performed in its original Broadway production on November 22, 1965 - two years to the day after the Kennedy Assassination - this rather ordinary song is one of many such from the musical Man Of La Mancha, which is of course based on the tale of legendary Spanish knight errant. >>
