Why: In the season premiere of "The Office," they lip synched (sanched?) and danced to that song. I thought it was old, but now it's in a Nike commercial. What gives?!
Answer: It's "Nobody But Me" by The Human Beinz! The song was originally released in 1968 as a reworking of a song that had been originally recorded by The Isley Brothers in 1963. This version has also been in Kill Bill: Volume 1 and The Depahted.
Here's the Isley Brothers version:
