And the Most-Sampled Song of All Time Is…
…NOT James Brown’s “Funky Drummer.” And no, it’s not the “Amen Break” from The Winstons’ “Amen, Brother.”
Yeah, I’m surprised, too.
According to the BBC, the song that’s been repurposed more than any other is this one.
And don’t take the Beeb’s word for it. WhoSampled.com says that bits of the song appear in over 1,200 other compositions.
