Even though this sounds like Fred if he got into Psychedelic rock this is the most awesome thing I've heard all day. The Butthole Surfters rock!
Sampling is nothing new. It's been done since the original DJ's back in the late 70's early 80's and I have nothing against the art of sampling.....Except when it comes to this crap.
Back in the day it really was an art form. DJ's would take records from all various types of artists and through their voodoo turn it into something completely new. But what Puff Daddy's done here is just stupid. There isn't one sliver or originality to this. All they did was loop the rhythm to The Police's "Every Breath You Take", put a simple hip-hop beat to it and figured no one would notice. Hell, they even ripped of the chorus!
I even commented asking if anyone even cares how little work went into the making of this song and no one seem to give a damn; one kid actually felt this was better than The Police's "version". They were fairly polite in response to me so I'll just let them live in peace with their obscenely blatant ignorance.
Seriously, how they won a grammy for this piece of shit is beyond me!
How was this one overlooked? Oh memories of the wedgies I was given in gym class while this was playing on an endless loop in the background! Oh the humanity!
But anyway, aren't you glad his daughter is continuing his legacy?
Initially I was going to post the Abba version of this song until I found this POS at the last minute. I knew there was the original Abba version and that stupid movie a few years back but taking a horrible song from a horrible band, mix it into a late-90's pop beat and add pre-teens on vocals, this truly is a suicide track.
Listening to Shaq rap is kind of like listening to me rap. I'll leave it at that; he's far too big of guy and I'm way too small to be criticizing his skillz. Plus I'm sure he's a really nice guy with a huge heart, so more power to him.
