Dan Black - 'Symphonies'

Argh, where have I heard that drum loop from? Anyway, great song, and wonderfully detailed video.



EDIT: ah, wait, is it Rhianna's 'Umbrella"?

Fantastic video. Now playing a game of naming all the films.

That's very good. I think you're right about the drum loop.

Further investigation suggests it might be a fairly basic Garageband loop (which isn't to put down its use, because it works there brilliantly).

I've just listened to this on repeat nine times.

There's also the instrumental he used to cover Notorious B.I.G. 's Hynotize too.

It's trying to identify all the movies that's been bugging me.

The hook for me was the string sample from the theme to Starman, an under-appreciated sci-fi film from the 80's by John Carpenter.

YES! Thank you for noticing the same drum loop in the two songs. That was really bothering me that I couldn't figure out where else I had heard it.
