    Well, one of the reasons I joined the forum was to see if someone could help me out with this one. I dunno if anyone's thrilled to hear these types of questions but whateva:

    In the intro to Jesus Wept, there is a sample that starts right before the speaker says "Hold on to your faith in God . . . . " and it ends right before the drumbeats leading into the great pumpkin quote.

    It's got the piano type instrument (you can see the depth of my technical music knowledge now) and a viola or cello line coming in shortly after. I was wondering if this was actually a sample from another song or was an original composition. If it's a sample, does anyone know what song?

    I must have that song, the music haunts me. It is incomplete and I must know it all!

    And now this:

    Thingy.

    That is all.
    He wear no shoe shine. He got toe jam football.
    He got mokey finger. He shoots coca cola.
    He say "I know you and you know me.
    One thing I can tell ya is we got to be free."

    First of all, welcome to the forum Bobble! The intro you are referring to was taken off of a little cartoon entitled 'Figure 8' , part of the School House Rock cartoons of the 70's. In the cartoon, a little girl is on ice skates, and does little 8's on the ice, singing about figure 8's...hope this helps you out a little in finding what you need!

    Hey Deity, thanks for the welcome.

    That does help! It gives me a place to start looking because I was totally lost on this one.

    How'd you find that out anyway?

    Wow, that was the greatest pointer ever. It took me all of five seconds to find it. You can buy the CD's on Amazon. This has made my day!!

    And soon the word's spreadin' through our part of town
    "Yo, 40 Park y'all, Jam-On's gettin down"

    sure the piano in the intro.... but what about that other schoolhouse rock sample in section two of Fantasia's Confidential Ghetto? SUPER FRESH.

    Don't for get the backwards "I will always wonder why that is" at the beginning of the Jesus Wept intro (the girl who sounds like she's chanting).

    Glad that you were able to find what you needed, and i'm glad i could be of some help. I always knew that the useless knowledge i have in my head would be good for something one day; just always thought it would be for Jeopardy or something :wink:

    And again, welcome to the forum. If you ever have any questions or are looking for something, chances are one of us will have an answer. And if not us, certainly Be himself will!

    Welcome to the forum Bobble!

    I think that's Be singing that, Louis. Your ears are failing in your old age... :rofl: :rofl:

    I think i did this many months ago, but for everyone's convenience, i will provide the "Jesus Wept" intro backwards; along with a sample of the song it is part of, "Holding You from Eventually". I apologize for the horrible recording quality, as i am a basic computer user, and dont have access to all the fun gadgets and gizmos that others do to make a better sounding recording...but at least it gives you all the idea. Enjoy!

    (And for the record, i too thought for the longest time that it was a girl chanting in the background, so don't feel bad Louis! :wink: )

    *Please note* Although these files aren't very large, about 1 mb, if you are on a 56k connection, please be patient for them to load. Thank you!
