Didn't someone make some blog post recently abt how some Donkey Kong Country song tooootally ripped off some other pop song? Or is this totally all in my head?

I think most of Invisible Touch has a DK vice but esp. the bridge on "In Too Deep."

Geir, you're a Donkey Kong Country fan?

No, I just happened to hear that tune in the Genesis thread, and felt like this track fit in better than maybe anything else. My relationship with Donkey Kong largely started and ended with the classic 1982 pocket game that introduced Mario and Donkey Kong to the world for the first time. :)

Samples Gigin Masin - Clouds, also sampled by To Rococo Rot and Bjork. Pretty sure Masin must have been a heavy inspiration for Dave Wise.

There's a particular 'on-hold' music I keep hearing when I ring clients which could easily be a DKC level.
