** Technically, the only direct sampling of it is "Rapper's Delight" by Sugarhill Gang (and Brazilian rap [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VYTaKTlVPXE "2345meia78"]]), but more than a few people have ''ripped it off''. A few were justified (Music/{{Queen}}'s "Another One Bites the Dust", which emerged after bassist John Deacon spent time with Chic in the studio) and others really blatant (Vaughan Mason & Crew's "Bounce, Rock, Skate, Roll"). Then Jimmy Spicer capitalized on the latter song by sampling it in order to do a parody of "Rappers Delight."

* Sasha's "Belfunk", from his 1999 ''Xpander EP'', samples barely-recognizable snippets of the 1991 Music/{{Orbital}} song "Belfast", e.g. the chime synth lead and the now chopped & screwed OneWomanWail. It was originally going to be a remix, until Sasha decided to make an original track out of it.

* In TheEighties and TheNineties, ''Series/WheelOfFortune'' advertised itself with a jingle that went "I'm a Wheel Watcher". Very few people know that it was a reworking of the 1968 hit "Girl Watcher" by The O'Kaysions. The reworking was sung by Kool & the Gang.
