Most of that is complete bullshit. I made it as far as "Thieves In The Temple," (which frankly was generous on my part) before I jetted. But not before I told them it was garbage, and gave it a dislike.

I should've left when they labeled "The Ballad of Dorothy Parker" as "Walk Don't Walk."

I think these fools don't know what sample means. A real sample would be Release it from Grafitti Bridge which is based on the drumbeat to Squib Cakes by Tower of Power and Tick, Tick Bang which is the drumbeat from Little Miss Lover by Jimi Hendrix, though in that case soem effects are used to obscure it. A song lyric mention a character's favorite song is not a sample. Jesus.

"Squib Cakes" should be required listening for anyone. It's so funky, complex, and amazing. TOP in general are great. That'd be one of two times he pulled from that song, because isn't it sampled and credited on Emancipation somewhere? I feel like disk 1. (Queue Bart.)

I forget if I knew about "Tick Tick Bang" or not.

The plus is that these "samples" aren't up for compensation. You can't copyright a drum beat or pattern. You can't take it off someone's record (ie: sample), but you can replay it and not get hit for copyright. I recently made a thread about songs that used the same, if not identical, beat in the 90s. (Enigma's "Sadeness Pt 1" being the lead example.)

Prince straight jacking "Little Miss Lover"'s beat was clever. It certainly wasn't the first thing he ever borrowed.

Some are far fetched, some are wrong, some are well know, some are dumb (like P sampling.copying himself or putting Martika instead of Cocteau Twins, but there were several little things I wasn't aware of, so not completely uninteresting in the end nod

Fink said there's a lot of unrecognizable classical music samples on GB (the whole album), I was always curious about these.
