 :ozwomp: I need your help! I am making a little playlist of songs whose use as a sample in another song is more famous. However, this doesn't mean the song used for the sample is worse! In fact, I'm looking for songs whose original is just as good, if not better. For example, "California Love" by 2Pac is definitely more well-known than the song it samples, "Woman to Woman" by Joe Cocker. However, both of these songs are absolute rippers. :tnt:

What are some other  songs you guys can think of that also rip just as hard as the songs that sampled them and made them (more) famous? Also, these don't have to be hip-hop songs, that's just what comes to my mind.

I heard Coolio’s Gangsta’s Paradise was sampled from “Pastime Paradise” from Stevie Wonder. Gangsta’s paradise  doesn’t have any swear words because that was a stipulation Stevie Wonder set to allow Coolio to use it.

Of course, how could we forget Under Preassure by Queen and David Bowie, and Vanilla Ice’s Ice Ice Baby, a song many classic rock fans hate with a passion?

One that was pretty famous when I was in middle school was Jason Derulo's "Whatcha Say", it uses Imogen Heap's "Hide and Seek" as the chorus... Not a huge fan of either song though.  :sad:

The Weeknd's 'Out of Time' intro bgm was sampled from 'Midnight Pretenders' by Tomoko Aran and both are bangers  :cool:

When Out of Time released I was really confused listening to it for the first time... I was waiting for Tomoko to start singing c;

(OH and let's not forget Rihanna's Please Don't Stop the Music taking a sample from MJ's Wanna Be Startin' Something)

Some song Rihanna did that didn't come to mind (I looked it up and apparently it's called "Cheers (Drink to That)") by Rihanna samples the "yeah yeah" from I'm With You by Avril Lavigne. Quite interesting if I do say so myself.

this one might already be in your playlist, but "hung up" by madonna samples "gimme gimme gimme" by abba super directly, and it's always the first thing that comes to mind when i think of sampling.

also, "s&m" by rihanna samples "let's go to bed" by the cure - a little harder to hear, but it's still there!

Sampled in Bound 2 by kanye and A BOY IS a GUN by tyler the creator

I just love this one, it's such a good song and it's cool to see it used different ways

Yeah!!! Speaking of Cure samples, I think there's a Lady Gaga song that samples Lullaby. iirc it was Government Hooker that sampled it but i may be wrong  :ok:
