Post The most influential six seconds in [modern] music history


Weird, because I started hearing this in some songs (Wont get fooled again), but that could be my tendencies towards patternicity :|

I always just assumed it was a stock sample. I guess it is, in a sense.

Very interesting.
Why does my life have to be so small
And death is forever
And does forever have a life to call its own?
Don't give me an answer cause you only know
As much as I know
Unless you've been there once
And I hardly think so

I take it this is about the Amen Break? A very interesting story. I'll watch the vid later when I have time.

I remember watching this some years back. Good stuff.

Yes watching it now I think it's the same video I was before. For some reason I thought I'd seen a TV show about it. Was this actually broadcast or is it just my faulty memory?

I don't think so, but I can't be sure. It stands to reason, as I don't watch very much actual television and if I do, it's usually at my friend Mr Malaprop's house (Mr Malaprop wouldn't watch a documentary that doesn't have fish in it).

It looks as if it came from some documentary or another, but I cant be sure. Thanks, now that will be bugging the hell out of me.
