Sampling can be fun, and the days of sampling for profit is not gone. I just recently became aware of Chemical Brothers' Galvanize, and Najat Aatabou's Just Tell Me The Truth. That stunning string stab, is actually from a very nice ditty by the Maroccan singer. Not only that, but the rhythm rudiments (the beat) has also been sucked into the Chemical Brothers' digital machinery, and laid down as the main backbeat. And voilá, a Grammy for the best dance single...

Najat version is for free, from her own homepage
Listen to Just Tell Me The Truth (mp3)

For the really interested, listen to Galvanize meets Star Wars (mp3)
