Subject: Samples of 70s songs from any decade

Written By: whistledog on 10/04/20 at 2:03 pm

Here is a really a catchy one from 2005 called Shine by The Lovefreekz.  If you know your music, you'll recognize the sample quite easily!

From 2005, here is one called Love on My Mind by an English DJ duo called Freemasons.  It samples the 1979 hit This Time Baby by American R&B singer Jackie Moore.  For all you music lovers, you might also recognize lyrics from the 1999 Tina Turner hit When the Heartache is Over.

Here is one from 2006 called Thunder in My Heart Again by an English DJ named Meck.  It heavily samples the 1977 Leo Sayer hit Thunder in My Heart and was quite well done.  The remix was credited as Meck featuring Leo Sayer

"Good Times" by Chic (1979) was sampled heavily in "Rapper's Delight" by Sugarhill Gang (from later in '79).

"He's The Greatest Dancer" by Sister Sledge (1979) in Will Smith's "Gettin' Jiggy With It" (1998).

"Ventura Highway" by America (1972) in "Someone To Call My Lover" by Janet Jackson (2001); the intros are exactly the same until the techno beat kicks in on the latter.

Here is the 2010 hit Barbra Streisand by the Canadian/American DJ duo Duck Sauce.  It samples the 1979 hit Gotta Go Home by German based disco group Boney M.  Here is an interesting fact:  Both songs peaked at #35 in Canada.  I actually didn't know that until making this post lol

In 2002, a British duo called Rikki and Daz sampled the 1975 Glen Campbell hit Rhinestone Cowboy and released it as Rhinestone Cowboy (Giddy Up, Giddy Up).  What's awesome about this is that it was more than just a sample.  They not only got Glen to re-record his vocals, he even appears in the music video. 

If you know Glen Campbell's music, then you know this is way out of his element, so the fact he agreed to do it was fantastic!  Oddly enough, it was not released in the US, but it peaked at #12 in the UK

Here in 2020, Norwegian DJ Kygo did a remix of the classic 1979 Donna Summer hit Hot Stuff and it was really good!

How about Think (About It) (Lyn Collins) and It Takes Two (Rob Base & DJ EZ Rock):

The sample at approx. 1:21 of Think (About It) became the main groove for It Takes Two...
