* [[Creator/LapfoxTrax Furries in a Blender]] released a song called [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tIGHfpZhWGg Crazy]], which promptly disappeared into obscurity until a WebAnimation/YouTubePoop [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VLqjJqdfVLs that combined it with the theme from]] IMMeen was put up. Nowadays, the I.M. Meen version is much more well-known, to the point where most people don't even realise it was a different song in the first place.

* Music/{{Santana}}'s "Maria Maria" is a twofer: not only the iconic riff borrows the melody from "Music/WuTangClan Ain't Nuthing ta Fuck Wit", but it was sampled by DJ Khaled in his collaboration with Music/{{Rihanna}}, "Wild Thoughts".

* Parodied in "Magic Man" the BadLipReading of "My Chick Bad" by Ludacris, which omits Music/NickiMinaj's involvement and pretends to have sampled (''another'' Bad Lip Reading of) "Too Much Heaven" by the Bee Gees.

* 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 "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da" by Music/TheBeatles to someone who grew up in the '90s, and they'll probably start singing "Why Don't You Get a Job?" by Music/TheOffspring.

* Many people only remembered Fastball had another hit other than "The Way" once "Out of My Head" got its chorus interpolated by Machine Gun Kelly's "Bad Things" (where Camila Cabello sings a slightly altered version).

** Other Sonic games use sampling too. In ''VideoGame/SonicRush'', the track "Back 2 Back" uses the main melody of "Louie Louie" by Richard Berry.
** Listen to the song "Stranger in Moscow" by Music/MichaelJackson and you'll recognise the end credits theme for ''[[VideoGame/Sonic3AndKnuckles Sonic the Hedgehog 3]]''. Given that Music/MichaelJackson composed music for ''[[VideoGame/Sonic3AndKnuckles Sonic the Hedgehog 3]]'', you might think that the song was sampled in the game, but it's actually the other way around - the tune from the game was sampled in the song.



* Bob & Earl's 1963 song "Harlem Shuffle" has the distinction of being both CoveredUp (by Music/TheRollingStones) and Sampled Up (the horn intro became the horn intro for House of Pain's "Jump Around").

* 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.
