We Came From Outer Space sample

#1 Post by very2000 » Fri 29 Jun 2012, 1:19 pm

Many apologies if this has been covered before, but...

What is the female vocal sample in the 'chorus' from We Came From Outer Space? After hearing Doctorin' the House by Coldcut/Yazz I'm convinced it's been lifted from there.

I can see how you would think of Doctorin' The House and I'm sure I can hear a bit of Ebeneezer Goode at 3.19 but I don't know.

It's probably Sylvia's voice being layered twenty times, and she's resentful she didn't get paid for each layer.

Seriously, didn't you always get the impression Sylvia kind of resented her bosses? Chris lazing around for a few hours while she worked on a hot studio mike over and over...

hearing this after eons..what a strange and trippy track..

so did PSB create all the vocal samples or were they samples from tv or movies? :?:
I was born in a hospital room with green walls, the doctor who delivered me wore a green overall, so did the nurses hovering around. So much greenery around, its no wonder that it is my favourite colour !

Well it's not on the whosampled.com website. And they do have a comprehensive list because I found the samples from "Forever in Love"

I also think they did their own samples on "We came from outer space"

Seem to remember an article that mentioned Chris sampling something from a tv show in his tour hotel room.

Could have that mixed up with Electricity (according to geowayne http://www.geowayne.com/newDesign/bilin ... ricity.htm, Outer Space doesn't have references)

The problem I find with the whosampled.com site is that, while it does list many "legitimate" samples, it's by no means completely reliable. Many of the submissions there are by people who don't quite know what a "sample" is. For instance, "Go West" does not "sample" Pachelbel's "Canon in D Major." "All Over the World" doesn't "sample" The Nutcracker. The Extended Mix of "Jealousy" doesn't "sample" Othello. You can say those tracks are inspired by, quote, or draw elements from those earlier works, but that's not the same as a "sample." So how can one rely on the accuracy of that list? I wish I could, but I can't.

Having a sample citation for Forever in Love doesn't necessarily mean the site has a comprehensive list.
