Young MC & The Oscars 2010: Forever linked?

I've been trying to watch all 10 of the Best Movie Oscar nominees (six down, four more to go). One thing struck me this weekend after watching "The Blind Side" and "Up In The Air" - both movies have pivotal scenes that involve Young MC's "Bust A Move."
In "Up in the Air" Young MC (real name Marvin Young) appears briefly performing the song during a corporate party scene. In "The Blind Side," the movie's main character Michael Oher sings along to the song prior to a traumatic incident.
Not sure what any of it means, but it's kind of fun to see the song relevant 20 years after its release.
And it's further proof that man, I am so old!
