When Timbaland Interpolates

I can still remember the day I first heard Bubba Sparxxx's "Ugly." The heavy bass hit and that high pitched guitar came on and the instantaneous chills came over me as they have so many times when I hear a new Timbo classic. I had no idea who Bubba was at the time but sure enough the track went #1 and a dude named Bubba Sparxxx stood up and let himself be known, resting easy on that debut gold plaque.

Timbaland gave Bubba some of his craziest tracks ever and Bubba rose the challange on every one. Have you heard "Reinfected", what about "Disappear", and of course what about my all time favorite Bubba/Timbo track "Take A Load Off"? Well one track that I didn't know about till many years later was the remix to "Ugly" with one Ms. Jade. In typical Timbaland remix form, the track banged just as hard as the original if not harder. Knowing how much Tim is a fan of the 80s and being an 80s kid myself, I immediately recognized a certain Timbaland interpolation. First off let's listen to the remix of "Ugly":

and Tim's inspiration during the chorus? None other than Peter Gabriel's 80's classic "Shock The Monkey"

I thought it was an easy one but Czar said easy for an old man so there you have it.
