Here is a really good 2009 song called Give it to me Right by a Canadian singer named Melanie Fiona.  It samples the 1968 hit Time of the Season by The Zombies

In 1968, Nancy Sinatra released a cover of the 1966 Cher hit Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down) and while her version was never a single, it was remixed and heavily sampled into a massive club hit in 2005 titled Shot You Down by a British duo called Audio Bullys.  In 2014, French DJ David Guetta sampled the tremolo guitar from Sinatra's version into a new vocal version featuring American singer Skylar Grey and the resulting song titled Shot Me Down became a massive club hit!

"Evil Ways" by Santana (which was recorded in 1969 and released as a single late in the year) was sampled by Mellow Man Ace in "Mentirosa" (1990).

The 1974 song "Life Is A Rock, But The Radio Rolled Me" by Reunion, contains a sample of "Baby I Need Your Lovin'" by the Four Tops (1966) late in the song.

Technically speaking, that is not a  "sample" as we now understand the term. The song pre-dates today's electronic "sampling" by several years. Those "snatches" of "Baby I Need Your Loving" by The Four Tops, "Celebrate" by Three Dog Night, and "I Want to Take You Higher" by Sly and the Family Stone heard during the outro of "Life Is  Rock" are simply the song's background singers singing them and hence an actual part of the performance of the song. There was no electronic sampling of the original songs as is now common.
