Nothing beats a good sample. It’s like a little puzzle in the song, taunting you for not being cool enough to get it. As a fan of DJ Shadow, I’ve pretty much given up on any meager shot I had at being the guy who points out the source of samples. But yesterday, as I partook in 007 Days of Christmas, I heard a familiar strain. You know that song 6 Underground by Sneaker Pimps, the infi-cool song from the Saint soundtrack? The first few notes are a sample of the music playing when James Bond walks into the bedroom to find his latest girl coated in gold. This, quite clearly, is awesome. It is also an indicator that I need to lay off the spy flicks a little.
I’d offer you a comparison, but Rhapsody doesn’t have the Goldfinger soundtrack. Dammeht.
