The foundation of music can develop from many elements; it can begin from something as simple as a feeling, a beat and of course a little bit of song sampling doesn’t hurt.
Sampling is derived from taking a portion of a sound recording and reusing it. It was originally most popular in hip-hop, but with sampling becoming heavily in use with the EDM genre it has spread to popular music.
Panic! At the Disco frontman, Brendon Urie, recently revealed to Revolt TV the bands desire to sample one of Fiona Apple’s songs, “Every Single Night,” for their debut single, “Miss Jackson,” off latest album, Too Weird To Live, Too Rare To Die! But Miss Apple sourly turned the band down, allowing zero percent of her music to be used; leaving Panic with somewhat of a bad taste in their mouth.
Check out the video above with Urie, hang in through the lead singer repeatedly saying “dude," to the part where he plays the demo of the song, then titled, “Bad Apple.” Even from the rough recording you get a feel of the creative twist on the song which sounds like it would have been pretty cool.
But the band didn't “panic,”and instead re-worked the song and title to what became a pop hit nonetheless. The lead single, “Miss Jackson,” reached the top ten on iTunes and debuted at No. 68 on the Billboard Hot 100. And more importantly, the revised song title references the iconic, Janet Jackson, and her hit single, “Nasty," and yes, it's been done before.
A few opinions for Apple are thrown in the interview, but it seems to be in a jokingly manner; hopefully there won’t be any additional hurt feelings. No reaction yet from Fiona.
