When it was brand spanking new... it was such a new sound. A new guitar bang, a new way of singing... you had to smile when you heard it... Then came the movies... I mean, can you just see Eddy Murphy singing it in his jail cell with the head phones on?
Then, after years of cultural integration it pops up in Moulan Rouge - in such a great new way...
Yup... it's not just a cool or fun song... it is a milestone in the history of music in my head.
