In popular culture[edit]

  • In the 1996 action thriller film The Long Kiss Goodnight starring Geena Davis and Samuel L. Jackson, Jackson's character hears the song on the car radio while driving and starts to sing the chorus as "I'm not talking 'bout the linens...", instead of "I'm not talking 'bout moving in", and Davis's character then promptly corrects his mondegreen.
