It's not the artists' strongest work, however.

The go together in perfect harmony.

Is the bet that you can get that song stuck in people's heads? If so, you win. Goddamnit.

Yep. My sister's name is Ebony, so really unoriginal people sing that to her fairly often.

Damn. It is now stuck in my head.

I think this was standard torture for obnoxious pre-teens when I was a kid. I didn't know it was possible to avoid knowing this song.

I'm pretty sure I've heard it before. I know of it. Does that count as knowing it?

Me too. Why did I open this thread and vote? Better question- why am I back here to reinforce the song being stuck in my head?

Now I have to pop the CD on to finally get it out of my head. And I LIKE the song, too!

Same here. I like to think that how little of it I do know sorta makes up for it, though.

I am not sure how I never heard this song before.

Principal Skinner and his mom sang it in the Simpsons, right after Apu's awesome version of where have all the cowboys gone. So yes.

Yes, but it's always the Joe Piscipo and Eddie Murphy SNL spoof that comes to mind first when I think of it, not Paul and Stevie's version.

I would go so far as to say it was perhaps a low point of both careers.

+1 yummy!

Not only was that the first thing that popped into my head when I saw the thread title, but I'm kinda having deja vu about this whole topic.

I'm getting my videos mixed up. I was thinking Paul & MJ did "Ebony & Ivory" but they did "Say Say Say".
