It's Bruce Willis and Danny Aiello, and it's called Hudson Hawk. Nice one.

...Also, the "easy to follow the beat" aspect of the latter reminds me of a theory that Galileo actually figured out that objects travel at a constant velocity (regardless of mass) by rolling various sized objects down sloped planes while humming "Onward Christian Soldier". Apparently humans can keep time uncannily well through song far better than counting or any other non-mechanical/non-external means. Which is to add some credence to your "stop-time" idea, but also leaves open competition from other bawdy rap hits of its day (unless you can tell me for sure that this one takes the cake).

+1 for a sincere answer. I'll have to do a bit of homework to see if I can accept that my great mysteries have such straightforward answers. Specifically, for 4-Non-Blondes, is there not something that fits that profile, progression-wise that would compete for theater-girl acclaim? And for baby got back, I really like the foundation of your theory, but my extensive knowledge of hip hop (combined with my complete ignorance of percussion) makes me think that most pop-rap has a similar quality. Is that not the case?
