808s & Heartbreak – The Samples


kanYe is one of the best producers there is when it comes to flipping samples.  He’s revamped numerous songs to fit his style on previous albums & 808s is no exception.  The guy just has an ear for what sounds good.  He spends days listening to a wide range of music to get inspiration for samples & production.  Most fans would have to admit that on some of these records kanYe does they can’t even notice he is using a sample & once they find out they might have never even heard of the original song or artist.  In any case here are the one’s from the new album…

Heartless = Alan Parsons Project – Ammonia Avenue

RoboCop = Patrick Doyle – Kissing in the Rain

Paranoid = Alan Parsons Project – Standing on Higher Ground

Bad News = Nina Simone – See Line Woman

Coldest Winter = Tears of Fears – Memories Fade
