Out of Control Sampling

There’s out of the control sampling on the radio these days sometimes it works sometimes it doesn’t.  There’s goodbye by Kristina Debarge that samples Na na na na hey hey hey goodbye.  I actually like this song.  The sample enhanced the meaning of the song and in general improved it.


Then there’s Sugar by Flo Rida that samples I’m blue (da ba dee) that kind of reminded me of Echo and the Bunnymen’s Lips like Sugar.  I thought the song was strange and uninventive.  I think that if your going to sample someone’s music use it effectively and don’t copy the song or combine other musicians songs with it, because that is uninventive.  Not to mention that Flo Rida has already used you spin me round in his song Right Round.  Can he think of a song completely on his own?
