i would just like to add, that "Chasing the devil" by Max Romeo was also used by "the Prodigy" for there breakthrough (at least in Europe) "Out of Space"... i don't know, if that song was popular in America, but it was quite succesful in Europe
LEON on January 17, 2009:
Also i think that Ooh Boy ~ 11/19/77 by Rose Royce was used by Shaggy in a song of his.. I may be wrong but off the top of my head i seem to recall it??
DJ Funktual (author) from One Nation Under a Groove on October 28, 2008:
