    This is it ladies and gents. The ambassador of Quan, the sample-city überlord, the one and only.

      James Brown's Most Sampled Song! Multiple excerpts from Think (About It) have been used in almost 3,000 songs! Someone even commented “Most legendary song in the world of sampling”. But it should be noted that it is undoubtedly the song of "The Winstons" (Amen, Brother) which beats them all, all categories combined, with a "drum break" used in more than 4,500 songs!

      Written, directed, arranged by and recorded on the James Brown label (People), the piece performed by Texan singer Lyn Collins did no better on the charts than the 66th position on the Hot 100 but still climbed in the Top 10 on the American "Soul" singles charts. But it made history in the late 1980s when "sampling" became a common practice that has never ceased. Many elements were used, whether it was the drums or the inimitable vocal interjections of James Brown. Perhaps one of the most popular songs that made such borrowings was "It Takes Two" by Rob Base and DJ E-Z Rock, in 1988.

      Note that James Brown himself makes use in this song (at the end) of a couple of lines borrowed from Think from The "5" Royales.

      Listen, you will see!
