That “So Hard” sample...

#1 Post by Propertius » Wed 30 Oct 2019, 4:32 am

I never realized that the opening “It’s” sample of “So Hard” isn’t an “It’s” at all—it’s “kiss” and comes from a rather famous bit of a not-so-famous ABC song, the “Kiss my snatch” line in “A to Z,” https://www.whosampled.com/sample/25176 ... BC-A-to-Z/

I must be the last to figure this out!

I always heard it as “Kiss” but didn’t realise they’d sampled it.

I never knew that either. I do remember that one of the kisses isn’t in time though. Never understood why they didn’t correct it.
Woof.

It’s not quite the same rhythm.

Not quite the last ... I'm behind you in the queue! I always thought it was 'it's' also!
you could say conventional ... and I could claim intentional

Cool! I didn't know it was sampled. Never heard that song before.

Now, how about the "oh it's so hard" sample from the porno tape.

And the line in question in the original ABC track is Martin Fry's voice, not Eden/Fiona Russell
