The Ultravox sample in Take That’s “Eight Letters”.
How annoying is that? I didn’t notice the sample until I checked the writing credits on the album. “Eight Letters” was listed as being written by Take That/Ure/Currie/Cann/Cross. I re-listened and spotted the very obvious keyboard riff from the ‘this means nothing to me” section of Vienna.
I really don’t like Eight Letters. I think I’d like it more if the ‘eight letters’ bit was excised and replaced with something that’s not a cloying, sickly, diabetic coma inducing cliche.
I really love Vienna and now it’s sort of tainted by Eight Letters. Either way, that bloody piano run has been rattling round my head for the last two days.
