* 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").

Added DiffLines:

** Actually, the whole song is based off a plethora of samples. Examples including: Vernon Burch's "Get Up", Ray Barretto's "Right On", Ralph [=MacDonald=]'s "Jam on the Groove", Billy Preston's "Uptight", The Headhunters' "God Make Me Funny", and even the theme song of ''Series/GreenAcres'' (the i-i-i-i-i-i).
* More Herbie Hancock examples:

* 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.

* How long will it take before Music/{{Rihanna}}'s "SOS" eclipses Music/SoftCell's "Tainted Love"?

How long will it take before Music/{{Rihanna}}'s "SOS" eclipses Music/SoftCell's "Tainted Love"?



*** Both songs sample CoveredUp versions, as "Tainted Love" wasn't originally by Soft Cell, and "Shut Up and Drive" actually samples Orgy's version.

** "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.

** And a meta-Sampled Up from the same song: "Bring The Noise" opens with a sample of a UsefulNotes/MalcolmX speech. And then Hideki Naganuma samples that same speech for the final boss theme of ''VideoGame/{{Sonic Rush|Series}}''.

** The samples of "Tom's Diner" and ''The Munsters'' theme song were frequently noted by the press, casual listeners, and fans to the point where even Suzanne Vega would join Fall Out Boy live to perform "Centuries". The Son Lux samples proved to be far more contentious. Much like Music/{{Halsey}} after she sampled "Easy" in "Hold Me Down", FOB got accused of plagiarizing Son Lux by rock and pop fans unfamiliar with how sampling works. Despite Son Lux's willingness to allow FOB to sample "Lost It To Trying" and past mainstream collaborations, the owner of Glassnote Records, Son Lux's label, would later write a ''very'' scathing post about allowing the band to sample "Lost It To Trying" in the first place. Depending on your perspective, it's either a huge diss towards FOB, an insightful look at the moral quandaries involved in letting a mainstream act to sample from indie acts, or a bunch of hand wringing from a man complaining about the band's popularity and "sellouts" but still allowed the sampling to happen anyways.
