Duran Duran - Crystal Ship


Shame that didn't make it on Stoned Immaculate. I know that was a late '90s alt rock thing but Duran Duran's cover is better than anything on it.

So good but man I would have liked to see Richard Thompson playing.

Coldcut - Stop This Crazy Thing



I knew it sounded familiar but I couldn't for the life of me place the background music. Thank goodness for whosampled.com.

Spoilered in case you want to try guessing and show me up.

Turns out Coldcut sampled Super Grit by Trouble Funk who sampled/interpolated Grieg's In the Hall of the Mountain King. Kills me that I couldn't make it out because it sounds so obvious now.
 
Everyone samples. At least Daft Punk didn’t make a big thing of it 😳

Adriano de Celentano - Prisencolinensinainciusol

"Ever since I started singing, I was very influenced by American music and everything Americans did. So at a certain point, because I like American slang—which, for a singer, is much easier to sing than Italian—I thought that I would write a song which would only have as its theme the inability to communicate. And to do this, I had to write a song where the lyrics didn't mean anything."
