Can I Get A Sample?...


Uh...Who is this Ms.A?..I can hear it now ringing through the blog. This man Mike Oldfield, has been heard lately in about 550,000-600,000 of your cars, stereos, and computers over this last week, but many of you may not have known it. First, I'll give brief history...

Via his Wiki, Oldfield is an English multi-instrumentalist musician and composer, working a style that blends progressive rock, folk, ethnic or world music, classical music, electronic music, New Age, and more recently, dance. In 1987 he released his album "Crises". From the album, the song "In high Places" was heard but not completely recognized being that it didnt stand out.....

(Check sample at :45)


...Until Kanye's "My Dark Twisted Fantasy" the #1 track titled "Dark Fantasy" samples Oldfield's track like none other, At first listen one might not think this is a sample because of the realness it shows, but check it out for yourself...

(Sample rings in at 1:07)

  26. Ms.A did you cook?

    ReplyDelete
  27. Ms.A in your journalistic opinion do you think Kanye's CD is one of the best of the 2000's era?

    ReplyDelete
  28. I sure did cook got up early enough to watch the Macy's Parade and cooked my butt off it was so good!!!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Ms.A what did you cook?

    ReplyDelete
  30. Awwww you watched the parade?

    ReplyDelete
  31. Ms.A how many people did you cook for?

    ReplyDelete
  32. I think that Kanye has one of the classic albums and that it will live on for a long time because this is a masterpiece.Rolling Stones dont give out 5 stars for fun

    ReplyDelete
  33. Ms.A what did you cook I want to know too...

    ReplyDelete
  34. Ms.A did you throw down

    ReplyDelete
  35. This sample is a production masterpiece

    ReplyDelete
  36. well I won't go too deep being that I don't want to be considered bias in any form being that my fiance worked on this album, but I think its the second best with #1 being 808's. I Say that because 808's came at a point where noone expected it from Kanye and from a rapper that went from "Graduation" to 808's shows so much growth and artistic ability from him. that album was stamped in the ground as "Kanye The Artist" and not just Kanye. This new album expanded his artistic ability and shows that he's not just a rapper in any form and the 808's sound wasn'tjust a fluke he's in his own lane now.

    ReplyDelete
  37. So this is what happens when the 2 most hated people in the music industry comes together and they create a baby that will live forever.I knew that this album was gonna be good but I good never had imagined the end result

    ReplyDelete
  38. Ok ok I will tell you I wanted to go see family but being that it was such short notice I cooked for Mike couldn't find a turkey so I cooked: a glazed Ham baked mac N cheese Cornbread cabbage deviled eggs and potatoe salad sweet potatoes rice pilaf green beans and peach cobbler.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Your not being bias it is what it is Ms.A it aint like your man is some fluke ass one hit wonder he is legendary status if the shit is great its great.And seeing that he co-executive produced 808's and Dark Fantasy what the hell is up with him and Kanye's connection man this is some beautiful fucking music.This shit will be remembered

    ReplyDelete
  40. Oh and a rotiserie chicken too..

    ReplyDelete
  41. 808's was great but I dont know I think I liked this one a little more because he rapped more and the songs "All Of The Lights" and "Lost in the World" true Stadium status he could perform that on U2's big ass stadium.He got some songs to be remembered

    ReplyDelete
  42. Ms.A you threw DOWN!!!!!!!! Damn

    ReplyDelete
  43. Ms.A can you come cook for me for Christmas

    ReplyDelete
  44. So Ms.A with you saying that do you think 808's and Dark Fantasy is the best albums from 2000 to 2010?

    ReplyDelete
  45. I agree they are all stadium status songs but you have to think if he didn't have his 808's area would he even know how to get to Dark fantasy?

    ReplyDelete
  46. she has a point there

    ReplyDelete
  47. The only 2 albums that I think can compete with these 2 on greatness is Radio Heads last album In Rainbows and there stunning Kid A album.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Ms.A got a great point on that if they were no 808's there would be no fantasy

    ReplyDelete
  49. I don't know about the best from 2000-2010 because I'm breaking down Alter Bridge's latest album Kings Of Leon Only by the night was incredible and there are so many more but I will say those two albums (Kanye's) are the most artistic I've heard in a while

    ReplyDelete
  50. Radio head In rainbows, Jay-Z american gangster, Amy Winehouse Back to black..there's so many more to compare with Michael buble's album coldplay's last one..So I don't know..

    ReplyDelete
  51. People just dont understand 808's yet I cant say I do but people dont understand it as a whole

    ReplyDelete
  52. Amy's Back to Black was classic I feel I really do

    ReplyDelete
  53. 1.) Radiohead Kid A

    2.) 808's/Dark Fantasy

    3.)Coldplay's last album

    ReplyDelete
  54. I forgot about the last coldplay

    ReplyDelete
  55. when a classic album like this comes out we forget about all the other classic albums that came out too your right Ms. A I Don't know either

    ReplyDelete
  56. There's other albums that dont get mentioned on here are anywhere really that are classics.Because that new Leon Russell and Elton John is classic and masterful of any of the CD's you named.Just because it was not mentioned on here are places that do alot of the mainstream music there's gems out there that are special.Theres alot of great fucking music being made out there still.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I wouldnt know either Ms.A

    ReplyDelete
  58. I do know Ms.A threw down!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Just because they don't get mentioned on here doesn't mean they aren't wonderful Ms.A is only one person damn

    ReplyDelete
  60. We cant call everything classics you guys there's really good albums and great albums but to say its a classic thats really special

    ReplyDelete
  61. Elton John is a classic artists but that doesn't mean everything he does is classic I'm sorry

    ReplyDelete
  62. she didn't say those albums Ms.A mentioned are classics she just said some of the best from 2000-2010

    ReplyDelete
  63. The Elton John new one is classic it got 5 stars just like Kanye's.I say Radiowheads is classic aswell and always Amy

    ReplyDelete
  64. Ms.A you can you come cook for me for Christmas I want some

    ReplyDelete
  65. the question was is 808's and Dark twisted fantasy some of the best albums put out from 2000-2010 not are they classic albums so I mentioned some good albums that were put out from 2000-2010 never said any of those were classics never mentioned the work classic once folks....

    ReplyDelete
  66. I say 808's is Kanyes best work because you need to setup for a base to get to something like Fantasy.You cant go from College Dropout to Fantasy back to back.There's alot of learning and growth that has to be done

    ReplyDelete
  67. You didnt mention it Ms.A but other people were

    ReplyDelete
  68. and for the one that said something about "the Union album" with Elton John and Leon Russell eight hundred dollar shoes is my favorite record ;)

    ReplyDelete
  69. Ms.A is not other people she caters to the fans

    ReplyDelete
  70. I will say it 808's and Fantasy classic and Back to black is classic and the new Elton John is classic but he is timeless

    ReplyDelete
  71. why are we comparing Ms.A to other people? we have our own thing here at SAU let it be

    ReplyDelete
  72. I think 808's and Dark Fantsasy are both classics they have to be its not often you come across a musical work like that.Both of those albums are amazing

    ReplyDelete
  73. I think in the next few years the Grammy's realize they made a mistake of giving the Album of the year award to Taylor Swift and not giving it to Kanye for 808's....they didnt even nominate him and that was a crime in my opinion

    ReplyDelete
  74. Whats going to be interesting is in 2012 Speak Now and Dark Fantasy are headed at a crash course for the Grammy's again

    ReplyDelete
  75. I love the new Leon Russell and Elton I really hope they tour for this album I would love to see them in tour

    ReplyDelete
  76. other people were mentioning that those albums you spoke on were classic albums Ms.A you hit the nail on the head with some of the best albums but I think 808's was lost because of Kanye's attitude and that was a crime I wonder whats going to happen this year?

    ReplyDelete
  77. I cant wait until next years Grammy's thats gonna be a face off.2012 its on with new albums from Coldplay,Beyonce,and Lady Gaga aswell its gonna be an extremely strong field

    ReplyDelete
  78. They should not have done Kanye like that.....that was wrong

    ReplyDelete
  79. The next year in music is gonna be exciting I cant wait
