* Did "Film/{{Ghostbusters}}" by Ray Parker Jr. sound familiar to you? Huey Lewis thought so. And a court agreed with him, awarding damages to Lewis for the fact Parker had basically lifted the riff from "I Want A New Drug" for the song.

* Amazingly, even progressive rockers {{Yes}} got in on the sampling action with their big 80s hit “Owner of a Lonely Heart.” The drum break at the beginning and the recurring horn-blast hook originally came from the 1971 song “Kool Is Back” by Funk Inc.

* Da-da! Da-da! Da-da! Da-da-da-da-da! No, that wasn't from Music/{{Eminem}}'s "My Name Is", it's sampled from Labi Siffre's "I Got the...". (MusicJossStone references it when her live performances of Siffre's song [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n7npH8InZJI#t=150s get to that riff]]: "I promise I won't rap, I promise. But it's so tempting!") It was also sampled by the Music/WuTangClan six years earlier in "Can It Be All So Simple."

*** And for Film/JamesBond songs, there's also Film/RobbieWilliams' "Millennium" sampling NancySinatra's "Film/YouOnlyLiveTwice" (the music video is even an AffectionateParody of 007).

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=loc533Vl65w "Energy"]] is an obscure 1985 song by Melissa Manchester. Nearly thirty years later, its chorus was sampled by Duck Sauce's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vdW10fY-Awc "NRG"]], which is much more well known (especially the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QbuwFJU1Gf0 remix]] by Music/{{Skrillex}}, Kill the Noise, and Milo & Otis)

* If part of the melody of Kaoma's "Lambada" sounds familiar, that's because it was used for the chorus of Pitbull's "On the Floor".
