Face '83: MTume

MTume's Juicy Fruit. Coyly changing "you can lick me anywhere" to "candy kisses everywhere" in order to calm jittery broadcasters, they managed to scrape a minor UK hit and a Billboard R&B number one.

More significantly, the song has been so sampled it's impossible to imagine music without it.

Okay, The Face. You're 2-0 up.
