The Enduring Power Of Sir-Mix-A-Lot

Who would have thought that a silly little rap about girls with big butts would become a fundamental (if you'll excuse the term) part of our culture?

Of all the songs I've posted on my MySpace profile (currently playing Salter Cane, a wonderfully dark alt-country band I came across... check 'em out at, one of the most popular has been Greg Tannen's folksey version of Sir Mix-A-Lot's Baby Got Back (sadly, it's not on his playlist any longer... but you can find it here).

Now I find this video, posted on Facebook by my good friend Christine... truly, Anthony Ray's timeless composition is destined to become as ingrained in the American Psyche as any of Stephen Foster's popular songs from the 1850's.
