“Hung Up On My Baby” must qualify as eternal at this point, considering it’s gotten a new lease on life every few decades or so. The timeline:

Isaac Hayes releases this instrumental gem, with its unmistakable guitar riff and big fat brass, as part of the soundtrack to Tough Guys — Hayes’ first film role, coincidentally.

Geto Boys mine the best parts of “Baby” to craft their gangster paranoia anthem “Mind Playing Tricks On Me.” The result: a hip-hop classic.

Indie disco duo Glass Candy sample the sample in their aptly titled “Geto Boys.” Topping off the borrowfest are lyrics pulled from the The Dixie Cups’ “Iko Iko.”
