    Spekig of I Feel Love - the most blatant rip-off might be this one... Though I have bollywood version which is runs it pretty close.

    If we allow bollywood there are quite few - do you reckon these guys had possibly heard Rock-It?

    The Immigrant Song groove makes me think of this tune from last year, too, but perhaps a bit of a reach.

    Resulted in gazillions of imitations, known as "Eurodance" on the continent. Defined the European charts (to be exact, the German charts) well into the late 90s. The recipe: keep it in the 115-130 BPM range, use some vocal samples from 60s/70s soul records (female singers), a mandatory Rap part (funnily enough often done by some black exGI hobby rapper stationed in Germany. I guess it was mainly done to give the whole thing some "street cred"), add somewhat cheesy synth melodies/strings.

    Germany's charts were full of that stuff well into the late 1990s when it was being eclipsed by those drawing board boy- (and girl) bands and Puff Daddy style cheese-rap.

    Possibly not the first electro track but certainly the one that got the ball going

    the 1st Sabbath record, obviously

    the 1st 4 Sabbath LPs actually, but I guess you'd accord the 1st one the most historical prominence in this sense

    Spotify has thrown on this 'Talk To Me You'll Understand' tune by 'Ross from Friends' (sigh) and in confluence with this thread I'm wondering -

    Was 'Archangel' by Burial the tune that launched a thousand pitched down RNB vocals?

    Obviously Burial's first album was an influence on ppl like James Blake but 'Archangel' was when he blew up in a big way.

    p.s. the Ross from Friends tune isn't that bad actually (and it's got 3 million bloody views on youtube, i assumed it was FACT fodder and nothing more!)

    The band's music incorporates extreme dynamic shifts; Francis explained in 1991, "Those are the two basic components of rock music ... the dreamy side and the rockin' side. It's always been either sweaty or laid back and cool. We do try to be dynamic, but it's dumbo dynamics, because we don't know how to do anything else. We can play loud or quiet—that's it".[108]
