Czar's Sample of the Week

What's up Tim stans? It's Friday, and that means another installment of Czar's Sample of the Week. Now, I know I've been gone for a couple of weeks, but I'm back and here to stay.

It's the last Friday in March, and since March marks the month of Tim's birth, this week's installment are all samples from Tim/Tim & Magoo albums. And since I've been gone for two weeks, I'm showcasing three samples this week, which all come from TV show or movie themes.

First off is "Here We Come" off the classic Tim's Bio album. The track samples the famous theme song from "Spiderman." Now, a few years ago, I heard a story of how "Here We Come" came about. The way the story goes is that there was a girl humming the Spiderman theme song in studio builiding. Tim heard her humming the tune, and brought her in the studio to record it. He then just layed down the drums and bassline, and out came "Here We Come." If you listen to the "Here We Come Timstrumental," you can tell that the person doing the theme song isn't Tim, Missy, or Magoo, so there might be some validity to the story.

Second sample that I'm going to showcase is "We at it Again" off the Romeo Must Die Soundtrack. The main guitar samples the theme song from a 1960s spy/science fiction British TV show called "The Prisoner." No story behind "We at it Again," except Tim has done a million different versions of the track (I think we're at 6 versions and counting). I love the way Tim sampled the track!

The last Tim sample for this week is "Naughty Eye" from the thrid Tim and Magoo album, Under Construction Part 2. This might be my favorite track from the album. It samples the theme from the 1907s movie, "The Girl from Petrovka" Now, there is a story behind "Naughty Eye." Tim actually did not sample the theme song from the movie or the soundtrack. Instead, Tim sampled a break beat sample compilation that featured the theme song on one of its series.

So that's it for this week. I hope you enjoyed the samples for this week, and check back next week for another installment of Czar's Sample of the Week.
