no, you missed my point completely. I said I liked the way they did it and
thought that was clever. What I said was, the problem with sampling is that
it takes a carbon copy of something and places it somewhere else. And that
you might have memories, or emotions tied to the original that are
corrupted by the remake.

THAT was my point in brief.
