Play Dick Dale’s Miserlou to a random person on the street and they’ll be quick to mention Pulp Fiction, the Quentin Tarantino movie. Tarantino brilliantly opens his movie with Dale’s rendition of the song right after Honey Bunny’s strident “any of you fucking pricks move, and I’ll execute every motherfucking last one of you!“. If you’re less fortunate, that person might yell out something like “Ahh that sounds like the Black Eyed Peas”. Keep walking, you don’t need this kind of negativity in your life. The history of Miserlou (or Misirlou) is a rich one and spans decades and several continents. Aside from
When I found out some weeks ago that if it wasn’t for Stevie Wonder, there would be no Gangsta’s Paradise, the 1990s would be significant, and my whole life would turn out to be one big lie, I drowned in the Internet of samples trying to find similar awesome discoveries. Okay, you guessed it, this is a list to show off your musical knowledge every time one of these rap tracks are played over the course of your life. Stevie Wonder – Past Time Paradise Most notable sample: Coolio ft. L.V – Gangsta’s Paradise David Axelrod – The Edge Most notable sample: Dr. Dre

It is a relatively unknown fact that during all of Elvis Presley’s successful career, he never wrote one song. In fact, there’s a small number of musicians who were actually the masterminds behind the hits that marked Elvis’ legend status in history. This fact doesn’t deny Presley’s power as a singer and as a performer. He had the power to turn any song into an Elvis song, and elevate it to levels that rightfully gave him the nickname “king”. Since many of his big hits are actually covers – Hound Dog was originally performed by Big Mama Thornton – we take

He would talk about the sophistication and genius of Jazz when our innocent Y2K souls were dancing to Britney Spears, and proclaim Sean Connery as the best James Bond when Pierce Brosnan was the king of the millenium. Jump to adult life, I was never sure how I would hear again about Omar, but I
