    Default Songs with coughing in

    I'm not sure why, but I like the sound of coughing in songs (maybe because I'm a bit 'chesty' myself) and recently I've heard examples of this by the Associates (Q Quarters), Elephant Man (on Mud riddim) and Chuck Brown (block party)...any others?

    beginning of raspberry beret by prince. this might just be the extended or video mix though, i cant remember if he does it on the album too.

    loads of hip hop songs too, usually to signify smoking weed. jadakiss has actually made the cough one of his signature vocal sounds.

    Wu-Tang - Reunited (I've only heard the Funkstorung remix)

    The first track on Walter Wegmuller's Tarot. Dieter Dierks introduces all the players and Wegmuller does this big cough before coming in with his portentous vox.

    on one of the villalobos tracks on the "achso" double pack, ("ichso," maybe?), there's a loop of what sounds like someone doing a small cough, maybe more like clearing their throat.

    beat me too it - it's a wicked cough, too - really wheezy and drawn out.
    in fact tons of herbalist reggae/dancehall tracks have couging in them.

    Missy Elliott: Pass That Dutch

    and

    7 Hurtz: Krystal (I think... definitely one of the tracks off Audiophiliac starts with a good cough)

    I'm sure one of the tracks on New Order's Technique begins with a little cough, which one though....?
