"I Like It" is the second single by Liverpudlian band Gerry and the Pacemakers. Like Gerry Marsden's first number one, it was written by Mitch Murray.[1] The song reached number one in the UK Singles Chart on 20 June 1963, where it stayed for four weeks.[2][3] It reached No. 17 in the American charts in 1964.[4]

In 1978, The Rezillos did a punk cover version on their debut album Can't Stand The Rezillos. In 1980, Depeche Mode had it in their early live set.

Uses In Popular Culture[edit]

It was used in the first part of two-part Australian miniseries called Peter Allen: Not The Boy Next Door that screened in 2015 on Channel Seven.
