    Paul!! You really surprise me. This is just so cool. Because of you, I’ve been looking through my old twelves as of late, and I came across this single. I thought to myself, “Does Paul know this song?” Well, you can imagine my delight on seeing it on your page! It’s been so long since I’ve heard this, but I really remember LOVING IT at the time. I was so obsessed with sampling back then, so when a song cam out with “sample” in its title, I purchased it without even hearing the record. This is a special memory brought back to my brain because of you. It seems that if I wait patiently enough, you’ll get to all the records in my collection, as you do seem to have EVERYTHING!! I just really like you so, so, so, very, VERY, VERY MUCH!! You are just the coolest human being living on the planet today. Thank you for your tastes, because they make me feel so great about my own. You’re just the best. Thanks again!

    You are very thoughtful Jeff. I remember this track getting tons of club play at the Wreck Room in Oklahoma City which was a very cool after hours club. All the people that were cool went there gay, straight whatever. It was so much fun 🙂

    I have to say, I have never heard *of* this song and the mid 80s was “my time” for collecting 12″s and finding/hearing all sorts of remixes. I lived in CT so maybe it wasn’t a big market for this kind of song…but never have I heard this song either…not any radio station mix shows or clubs I visited even in the late 80s. For it to be #5 on Billboard must be a typo. http://www.billboard.com/archive/charts/1985/dance-club-play-songs doesn’t even list it (nor does year 1986).

    Not trying to rain on a parade…I just find the info of this song to be wrong. 🙂

    According to Joel Whitburn’s Hot Dance/Disco book the track also titled “Sample’s” debuted on the US Billboard dance chart on August 23, 1986 spending twelve weeks on the chart peaking at #5. There are two US 12″ inch single’s for the song “Sample’s” and Sample That! same song different mixes both released in ’86 at the same time.

    I love “House” music, never heard this before, that aside it does sound “Art Of Noise” like (or is that me?).

    Noticeably absent from the big House release of 1989 – The History Of The House Sound Of Chicago, but then only commercial records sell!

    Another great choice Paul.. 🙂

    I can hear what you mean Ex15 there does seem to be some Art Of Noise influence 🙂

    Just incredible Paul! All those memories came flooding back. I love how alternative/rock sounding this is. And that Frankie sounding pelvic-thrusting bass line is killer. And I love the sound of breaking glass used as a percussive element. Takes me back to John Robie’s studio band C-Bank and their “One More Shot” song. This is so cool. Even their logo is wicked as well. Thanks again for this Paul, it’s an awesome way to start the week.

    Hey Paul,
    I missed out on a lot of the dance music in 86, working for an air line I worked in Kansas City and lived in St. Louis. I had not heard this song before but it reminds me of early Depeche Mode like 83’s Work Hard [East End Remix].
    Thanks. 🙂
