South ParkEdit

The song was later included on the South Park soundtrack album Chef Aid: The South Park Album.

On Chef Aid, the song opens with a mock phone call between Sid Greenfield (voiced by Trey Parker) and South Park creators, Matt Stone and Trey Parker, talking about putting the song on the album. In the mock phone call (which begins on the previous track, and continues throughout "Horny") Matt and Trey repeatedly voice their dislike for the song, and Sid Greenfield finally agrees not to include it. (Of course this is after the song has already finished playing in its entirety.)

MashupEdit

In 2006, a mash-up between "Horny" and The Dandy Warhols' song, "Bohemian Like You" was released as "Horny as a Dandy".

Hot 'n' JuicyEdit

Hot 'n' Juicy were initially a duo of singers, Emma Lanford and Nadine Richardson.[2] They appeared on the 1998 version of "Horny" and the 2006 mash up "Horny as a Dandy". They were residents of a tower block on the former Lee Bank estate in Birmingham.[3]

They became a trio in late 1998 when they were joined by Nikki Belle,[2] who remained in the group until 1999.[4]

After the group split up, Belle went on to provide vocals on a version of Womack & Womack's "Teardrops" for Whelan and Di Scala.[5]
