Sample Sunday: Alan Parsons Project – “Old And Wise”
Its late…..the clubs have closed, but heres a lil Sample Sunday for your Monday……..Back to one of my favorite…..as you may have seen from my last Sample Sunday post. It was on one of my favorite albums that I was listening to just the other day.
The Sample: Alan Parsons Project – “Old And Wise”
You can check out my bio of Alan Parsons Project in my last Sample Sunday that feature their song “Ammonia Avenue.”
As for this sample, it comes off of Alan Parsons Project most notable album, Eye in the Sky. Found on the B side of the vinyl(my reference), it was a very successful song chart-wise, reaching #21 on the US Billboard AC charts.
The Flip: Kendrick Lamar- “Keisha’s Song (Her Pain) Feat. Ashtro Bot”
Before there was Good Kid m.A.A.d City, there was Section.80. Although Kendrick might not refer to this as his first album, it was his first album as an independent artist. One of the songs on the album was “Keisha’s Song (Her Pain)featuring Ashtro Bot”. A very powerful song, like all the other songs on Section.80. This track focuses on the hardships of a prostitute and eventually becomes a lesson for his sister. ENJOY!
