Da Da Da - ich lieb dich nicht ...
(5 plays) | (0 fans)

The full name of the song is "Da Da Da du liebst mich nicht du liebst mich nicht aha aha aha," which translates to English as "Da Da Da I don't love you you don't love me aha aha aha." It was shortened to "Da Da Da" when released in the US. A hit in Europe in 1982, this song became popular 15 years later when it was used in a Volkswagen commercial.: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jdccNAOvPHg

Sure Shot
by Beastie Boys

This is a rare rap song that prominently features a flute. It was sampled from the 1970 song "Howlin' For Judy" by Jazz flautist Jeremy Steig. Although he has released more than 20 albums, these few seconds of work gave Steig his biggest payday. "I looked at it like winning the lottery," he told The Guardian of being sampled. "I don't know what it did for my career – I haven't really seen any signs of it. But they paid me pretty well, and it helped me through some hard times, so I was really happy."

"'Killing In The Name' was written at a key moment in recent American history. The beating of black motorist Rodney King by four LAPD officers in March 1991, captured on CCTV footage, had enraged the nation after it was serially beamed across every news channel."
