The Bad Boy remix of Gina Thompson's "Things That You Do" employs the same sample of Bob James' "Take Me to the Mardi Gras" that's most widely known for its use on Run-D.M.C.'s Raising Hell opener, "Peter Piper." The familiarity carried the track to No. 12 on the R&B charts and made Thompson a star for a very brief moment in time. Also worth checking: the Darkchild remix, which flips Jimmy Spicer's "Money" and features Raekwon, Mike Nitty and Craig Mack. —Ernest Baker

Inspiration: Run-D.M.C. "Peter Piper" (1986)
