i remember mad black kids bumping Bust A Move and Funky Cold Medina and Wild Thing at my school and in our neighborhood.

i think those songs hit the audience they were intented to hit by the artist, which wasn't white people.

i think white people latched on to them because they were light hearted and didn't have much gravity as far as content goes, though they had plenty of cultural gravity.

i think ONCE white people discovered them and latched on, THEN those songs became "uncool" or "corny."

but to say black people had NO interest? not from what i saw.
