Can I Get A Sample?....
First off this HAS to be one of my favorite samples of all time. The song "Boadicea" by Enya from her album "The Celts", became Enya's highest charting single in the U.S., when it peaked at #2 on the Hot 100 in 2004.
Being sampled by the Fugees in their song "Ready Or Not" (With a little bit of fight) Became the second single from The Fugees' 1996 album The Score. The song contains a sample of "Boadicea" by Enya, and its chorus is based on "Ready or Not Here I Come (Can't Hide from Love)" by The Delfonics. The song spent two weeks atop the UK Singles Chart in September 1996.
Mario Winans song "I don't Wanna Know" reached #1 in the United Kingdom and #2 (for 8consecutive weeks) in the United States, and remains Winans' only major success to date. Its eight weeks at #2 also put the song in joint fifth place for the most weeks at #2 by a song which did not go to #1, behind Foreigner's "Waiting For A Girl Like You", Missy Elliott's "Work It", Donna Lewis's "I Love You Always Forever" and Shania Twain's "You're Still The One".
You have to remember these songs if not..Check it out....
