Fun fact: this song was used (illegally, of course) in the awful bootleg game Action 52.

A classic dance tune. I couldn't do a set without multiple requests for this track. Almost hip-house like -- of course at 111 bpm it would work.

I think they should have pressed it in 45 RPM considering it is only 5:00 long. It would have sounded better.

An all time classic! Still drop this at a party, and always goes down a storm. I have this 7" version - the pressing is nice and loud, which you don't always get with a little 45. And I've had the same copy for years, still plays great. Top top tune.

This is the first "rap" song I remember liking, back when I was 6 years old (either this or the Beasties' "Brass Monkey"). Even today, I laugh out loud when Rob Base says, "I like the whopper, *BLEEP* the big mac." If only music today was as innocent and care free. Did the duo make any other notable jams? Doubt it. I'd imagine James Brown appreciated this song for the thousands of dollars it made him. Lyn Collins got paid too.
