WHEN SAMPLING GOES WRONG #3

There aren’t a lot of words to be write in the final installment of this series.

Fortunately, I’ve only heard the sampler once.

I think it was being played in an ironic way. (I live in a college town/city full of hipsters and their beloved irony which extends to jukebox selections.)

However, every time that bassline starts up, part of me wants to hold my breath until I’m sure that it’s this…

…and not this.

As if sampling “Under Pressure,” to create the skeleton for “Ice Ice Baby” wasn’t blasphemous enough, hearing Vanilla Ice explain the difference between the two songs was the straw that broke the camel’s back. (Also one of the funniest unintentional comedy moments in my lifetime.)
