Everybody Needs A Ninja. No, Seriously.
I think we can clearly determine that Everybody Needs A Ninja is the most popular song I’ve ever written. Every week I’m alerted to new YouTube videos that have used the song (usually without bothering to credit me in any way). Not surprisingly, an overwhelming number of them are video game screencaps. I’ve started collecting as many as I can find into a single playlist, but honestly I gave up after nearly an hour of clicking “Add To Playlist”.
I’m sure more will come, but you can see the collection grow at http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLr94yr2BIVpvfkuIhihk3ZBE1_rmn7Fvc
The thing that absolutely slays me is that so many people would use a song and not even bother to tell others where to find it. I mean, buying a 99¢ track is easy enough these days, but just typing my name and web address? Obviously they thought the tune was awesome enough to use in their video, why not show people where it comes from?
