Song of yesterday

A while ago I downloaded an app … I forget what it is called… I want to say Who Sampled… maybe… anyway, it basically runs its algorithm through your music collection and picks out all the songs with samples and identifies from whence they came. I’ve always marvelled at the attention to detail required to hear a song and pick out some three-note riff that is then used to form the basis of a new one. Wu Tang are particularly awesome at it. Yesterday’s song of the day is Pee Wee’s Dance, sampled by The Roots for their song “Get Busy”.
