Vanilla Ice ‎– Ice Ice Baby

Genre:
Style:
Year:
Notes:
The song is based on the bassline from "Under Pressure" by Queen and David Bowie, who originally did not receive credits or royalties for the sample.
In a 1990 interview, Vanilla Ice said that the two melodies were slightly different because he had added an additional note, an anacrusis ("pickup") between odd-numbered and subsequent even-numbered iterations of the "Under Pressure" sample. But In later interviews, he admitted that he had sampled the song and that his earlier statement was a joke. He later granted Queen and Bowie songwriting credits.

If memory serves, and it probably doesn't, there was the idea at the time, or maybe we were joking about it, who knows anymore, but the generic black sleeve was to hide the fact that you actually had a copy of this. The damn song was everywhere, and no one actually claimed to like it, but damn if we all didn't own a copy (mine in the anonymous black sleeve), and damn if we didn't all flood the dance floor every time it came on. Every time! So, yeah, I'm actually entering it into my 'cogs collection! Black Sleeve and all....

Is it really Australasia tho? Why do I have to enter so many words? Punishing brevity is dangerous.

My copy of this has the same cat# but it has the same tracks as the version at http://www.discogs.com/Vanilla-Ice-Ice-Ice-Baby/release/321944. Other than the cat# the label looks identical to that one also.
