    Saw this article on Yahoo about Tony Basil who did one of the original MTV videos. She's now 70 and made no money off Mickey. This video clip tells the story, it was done when she was 65.

    "Mickey" was the original one hit wonder. A massive world wide hit, Toni was never able to come close to that again.

    Yeah, if you didn't write it you aren't going to get paid for it.

    Them's the breaks!

    And you can't really go out on tour and cash in on one song. Not when it's a song like that, anyway.

    She's had a really interesting career: she worked on "The T.A.M.I. Show" back in the 60s, she had bit parts/appearances in "Five Easy Pieces", "Easy Rider", and the Monkees' movie "Head", and she's done choreography for "Laverne & Shirley", David Bowie, and M.C. Hammer!

    Girl's been around.

    I'm sure she's got some stories. If she's looking for a payday she should start telling some of them.

    Five Easy Pieces. She was one of the hitchhikers and was in the famous diner scene with Jack Nicholson
