That sounds like an average, and I mean average, disco record from the late 70's/early 80's. The sort of thing my sister would be playing in her room. Is it meant to be groundbreaking or something?

 

 

Agreed, my mate loves it but it just leaves me cold.

 

Heard Get Lucky for the first time this morning. Have to say I'm with you guys. Weak and repetitive. There again I remember Chic and Nile Rodgers first time round and wasn't a huge fan then.  <_<

On this theme, TRL Helpdesk, there's a hook in Aerodynamic - from their Discovery album - would anyone here know if it's a classical music sample? I've tried to look for it but I think it might have been a piano version of that song I heard. Just wondered.

That's the one.

My son had a file of samples that daft punk had used in their own tunes,I'll see if he still has it.

Nobody using samples can be classed as genius nor should they be hailed as the second coming.

Very clever and very creative perhaps but that's not the same thing.

No I don't care if you're if you're into different bands

No cause for so much hatred, I'm just a different man

Pull off that cover, I will too, and learn to understand

And for the record, although not a fan, Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards were talented songwriters and producers.

I think Get Lucky is a work of genius - am I allowed to say this, given that the track isn't based on a sample..?

I think the sample of The JB's 'The Grunt' in Rebel Without A Pause is a work of pure genius... am I in the clear to do this..?

I was thinking that. I'm guessing the song by Amerie rather than the song One Direction released recently with that name. Neither are in the top 100 pop songs of the past 10 years I'd say. The Amerie one is good, not as "legendary" as Crazy in Love has become in a similar sort of time though. 

 

I do like Get Lucky, although my personal favourite pop song this year is Justin Timberlake's Mirrors. Not a floorfiller but there's just something about it.

 

1Thing shades Crazy in Love for me.  It's a tougher go-go track, and the drum sample is quite incredible.

Oh my god.  It's true.  You really don't have a sense of humour.

 

Re-read the exchange FFS.

I actually like stumbling across a back reference when it comes to samples. Especially when it's songs I grew up with sampling songs from before my time. An obvious starting point would be Will Smith. Fascinating stuff sometimes. A lot seems to be funk/soul/disco when it comes to 90's R&B/hip-hop.

 

(*And yes, please let the TRL music bores refrain from the "R&B" argument!!) :P

It isn't that but thanks for offering, it's "the other half" of the song if you like.

 

1:03 in...

But it was simply played on a piano where I heard it used on a tv show, wracked my brains just to get it to Daft Punk!

I agree. Samples are a fantastic way (certainly pre-internet) of introducing people to music they've never heard before.  You mention Will Simth - 'A Touch of Jazz' is an incredible track that brilliantly referenced Marvin Gaye's T Plays It Cool.  A friend of mine recently introduced the track to Plan B - he couldn't believe it.

A bit of wiki'ing.

The guitar break isn't a sample as such but an impossible to play 'homage' to baroque violin music.

The piano version you'll have heard was by Myleene Klass and was this piece of music transcribed for piano.
