Young MC's frothy rap song "Bust a Move" was released in 1989, and twenty years later it's still paying dividends. In 2009 alone, the song was featured in:
- "Glee" (as covered by Broadway star Matthew Morrison — see above)
- "The Blind Side" (as covered by Quinton Aaron and that little kid who ruins the entire movie)
- "Up in the Air" (in which Young MC himself makes a cameo, performing to an audience that includes George Clooney, Vera Farmiga and Anna Kendrick)
So start writing that hit single! If it's catchy enough, you'll be set for life. Or at least for pocket change.
