Jeff Klopmeyer Posted January 27, 2003 Share Posted January 27, 2003 Not once but [i]twice[/i], recently, I've heard some older song that I wasn't very familiar with, and suddenly realized that a certain section had been sampled for a newer hit. I mean, nothing new about that phenomenon, of course. But the interesting thing in both of these cases was that I was much more cognizant of the new song than I was of the original one that'd had, respectively, a horn line and a rhythm section lifted. In the same way that a person could conceivably discover the music of the old blues masters by listening to Led Zeppelin and Eric Clapton, or go back and read Nabokov after having heard his name referenced in a Police tune, I wonder if any of the original composers of these tunes have enjoyed any level of resurgence after their song samples were used in newer hits.
