Weather Report and Portishead

Check out the first couple of seconds in “Elegant People” by Weather Report and “Strangers” by Portishead. Notice anything suspicious?! Both songs are awesome…it’s worth it to keep going after the intros. It’s kind of incredible that even relatively obscure jazz tunes from the ’70s get sampled–by a late ’90s British alt-rock band no less.
