9. Deee-Lite, 'Groove Is in the Heart'
When New York dance quartet Deee-Lite released their debut single "Groove Is in the Heart," they couldn't have known it would quickly become a huge pop hit around the world. The song samples everything from Billy Preston's "Uptight" to the Headhunters' "God Made Me Funky" to the theme song to Green Acres. It's a crazy hodgepodge of sounds (featuring a rap by Q-Tip) that all comes together in a brilliant way. They never had a single nearly as big again, but it really didn't matter. The song continues to pop up in movies, TV shows and a wide variety of dance video games.
