Artist: Gary Numan

Album: The Pleasure Principle

Appears On (Mixes): The Opposite Of Smoke Is Egg Whites

Song Notes: The main riff to this song is probably really recognizable, even to people who've never heard The Pleasure Principle; Basement Jaxx sampled it for "Where's Your Head At?", which was a decent sized hit in its own rite and later used for all sorts of commercials. I'm very pro-sampling, though I have to admit feeling a little weird in cases like this where it seems that they're pretty obviously relying on someone else's hook to sell their song, considering they didn't really bring a whole lot to their version. I think my basic feeling on it is that they should be allowed to do it, although I think it's pretty lame that they did, considering that their own creative input was pretty low, and ended up dragging the Gary Numan song down a bit (I enjoy "M.E." quite a bit; I tend to find "Where's Your Head At?" grates after a while). - Rev. Syung Myung Me
