"No!" that begins Alphabet St

Just realized its sampled off the end of a final mix of "Can I Play With U" the collaboration with Miles Davis... where the last Prince vocal is the "No!"

But that's from somewhere else even earlier, isn't it? I can't remember.

Never really occured to me but, yes, now that you mention it, it does sound a lot like it.

amazing find. Could be well true. Somebody with a few minutes and some decent sound-software can do the test.

I had noticed the similarity before, but you're right: it sounds like a direct sample (at least when the speed is correct).

.

I'm not sure I've heard it in another song.

Also, Arrested Development sampled Prince saying "Tennessee..." from Alphabet St. for their hit "Tennessee" (obviously)

Which cost them a surprisingly huge (in my opinion) amount of money. I´m surprised that they still cherished and celebrated him even after those sample issues.

Prince didn't take any of their publishing though, which was graceful. One-time sampling fees were more common before the landmark Biz Markie/ Gilbert O'Sullivan ruling.

Fun fact...

Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails illegally sampled Alphabet St for the song Ruiner. He was never caught. Haha

I never heard that sample.

Do you mean "Ringfinger"?

Trent does thank Prince for inspiration in the liner notes of 'Pretty Hate Machine'.

But, the opening seconds of "Sin" from NIN samples the opening seconds of "Around The World In A Day"

Sped up, and sneakally lol

It's hard to get the exact moment with YouTube time codes but

Alphabet St = https://www.youtube.com/w...&t=199

Ruiner = https://www.youtube.com/w...kT-aMgZvQI

Or the Steely Dan vs. Lord Tariq & Peter Gunz situation. Becker & Fagan got ALL THE CHEESE!!!! I think Sting did from Diddy as well

I know Sting took all the publishing for "Lucid Dreams" but not "I'll Be Missing You" (which STILL gets played, so maybe he changed his mind after that).
