* 4hero's "Mr Kirk's Nightmare" (1991) samples its titular dialog from Think's anti-drug song "Once You Understand" (1971), and its breakbeat from Music/TheIsleyBrothers' "Get Into Something" (1970). The 1996 remix also includes a sample of [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries Captain Kirk]] saying "Energize", among others.
* The main breakbeat in 2 Bad Mice's "Bomb Scare"(1992) is a sped-up version of the rhythm from Soul II Soul's "Back 2 Life"(1989), which itself sampled Graham Central Station's "The Jam"(1975).

* An interesting variation with Music/NickiMinaj's "Anaconda" which heavily samples the production of "Baby Got Back" by Sir Mix-a-Lot, though also uses interpolations of that song ("Oh my god, Becky/Look at her butt" and "Don't want none unless you got buns, hun").

* Play "He's the Greatest Dancer" by Sister Sledge to anyone who grew up in the 90's, and for the first couple bars they may be expecting it to become "Gettin' Jiggy Wit It" by Creator/WillSmith.
** Will Smith is a serial offender. "Will 2K" uses "Rock the Casbah", and you'll never guess the name of the song he sampled for "Just the Two of Us"...
** Don't forget "Film/WildWildWest", sampling Music/StevieWonder's "I Wish" ''and'' Kool Moe Dee's song with the same name. The video actually features both of them in it, so at least he gave them their props.
** Or "Miami", based off The Whispers' "The Beat Goes On''.
** And "Film/MenInBlack", which samples the bassline and interpolates the chorus melody of Patrice Rushen's "Forget Me Nots", which was also sampled in Creator/GeorgeMichael's "Fastlove". Both Will and George's interpretations were Number One hits in the UK.
** He even did this as the Fresh Prince (accompanied by DJ Jazzy Jeff), sampling the theme to ''Series/IDreamOfJeannie'' in "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0FFrCZNNCeU Girls Ain't Nothin' But Trouble.]]"
** Also, his 1991 hit "Summertime" samples a loop from Kool and The Gang's "Summer Madness". The lyrics include a couple mentions of "summer madness" as a ShoutOut.



** The Fugees used Music/{{Enya}}'s "Boadicea" in their hit "Ready or Not" and they were nearly sued for it because they sampled it without Enya's permission. It was later used "I Don't Wanna Know" by Mario Winans, in which Enya is credited as a featuring artist. As with the example above, both uses of the sample were Number One hits in the UK.



** Not to mention "Sexy Bitch" by Music/DavidGuetta ft Akon.

** "S&M" is based off the bassline of Music/DepecheMode's "Master and Servant". Both songs are about sadomaschoism, so that figures.
** "Don't Stop the Music" sampled much of Music/MichaelJackson's "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'" (particularly the line "Mama-say, mama-sa, ma-ma-ko-ssa"). In fact, both Rihanna and Michael were sued by Cameroonian musician Manu Dibango, who claimed that the hook originated in his 1972 song "Soul Makossa", though the case was dismissed.
