Do the Bartman by The Simpsons


"Do the Bartman" is a pop rap song from the 1990 Simpsons album The Simpsons Sing the Blues. It was performed by The Simpsons cast member Nancy Cartwright and was released as a promotional single from the album on November 20, 1990. The song was produced and written by American recording artist Bryan Loren. Although Jackson did not receive any credit because he was under contract to another record label, he was a fan of The Simpsons--especially the character Bart--and had called the producers one night to contribute to the single and do a guest spot on the show.

Even though it received a lot of radio airplay in the United States, "Do the Bartman" was never officially released as a single in the United States. It topped the charts in Australia, Ireland, New Zealand, Norway, and the United Kingdom. Additionally, it reached the top 10 in Sweden and the Netherlands, and was certified gold in the United Kingdom. A music video, which was directed by Brad Bird, was released for the song in 1991. The video became a hit on the American network MTV and received a nomination at the 1991 MTV Video Music Awards.
