Can't use column name "desc" in mysql

INSERT INTO movie (id, title, desc, released, views, featured) VALUES ('', 'title', '
\r\n description
\r\n', '2006-12-12', '0', '0')

error is

1064 - You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use
near 'desc, released, views, featured) VALUES ('', 'title', '
\r\n description \r\n', ' at line 1

table structure is

id [ (pk, auto_inc) int(11) ]
title [ varchar(256) ]
desc [ text ]
released [ date ]
views [ int(11) ]
featured [ int(11) ]

running in phpmyadmin sql editor

desc is a mysql reserved word. you must use backticks `` with the columns which are reserved words.

INSERT INTO movie (id, title, `desc`, released, views, featured)...

You should avoid using reserved words as column name or must use backticks (``)
