I saw the movie Videodrome the other night, and it had a part in it that
has been sampled and put in to an industrial song. I know I have heard
the song, but I can not remember what song it was. The sample says:

"You know me, and I sure know you...every one."

I think it's in a Skinny Puppy song, but after listening to all the
Skinny Puppy I own, and most of what the radio station owns, I still
don't know what it is. So, maybe it's in a song that is by a band that
sounds a lot like Skinny Puppy, and that's why it's stuck in my head that
it is in a Skinny Puppy song.

Somebody please help me! Not knowing this is really bothering me!

Thanks so much.

I am not sure about the quote you are looking for, but there IS a Skinny
Puppy song with a Videodrome sample in it. At the very beginning of "The
Drain," VERY quiet, you can hear the line (I think it's James Woods):
"You'll forgive me if I don't stick around and watch. I just can't cope
with the freaky stuff."

How come I recognize this so well! ;-) You're not the first to have
had this experience. Here is my story about when this happened to me.

[This is the true story about the birth of the Top Sample Sources List]

One night 2 years ago, I watched TV and got stuck with the movie
Videodrome. When I watched the movie I recognized three samples that
I've heard somewhere before, although I couldn't remember where I've
header the third of these samples. So on February the 8:th 1993, today
exactly 2 years ago, I posted the following article to r.m.i asking for
the missing information:

> Subject: Identifying samples from the movie "Videodrome"

I quickly received a few answers telling me that it was Front 242 that
had used the third sample. At this point I've gotten rather fascinated
that I've had discovered a movie that been sampled by 3 *different*
artist (or 2 depending how you count). So I decided that I should
find out if it existed more movies that was even more heavily sampled
than Videodrome. Two days later, the Februray the 10:th 1993 I posted
the absolutely first version of the Top Sample Sources List:

From that on the list has just been growing, and today we have the
Top 304 Sample Sources List and the Top 284 Sampling Groups List.

Well you can also add "Long the new flesh," which appears in a few
songs, right now I can only think of EMF (ack!) un I think either
Children or I Believe.

Then on a much cooler note there is in Front 242's Masterhit,"You know
me, and I sure know you, everyone of you!"

Actually, it's not James Woods who says, "Excuse me if I don't ......",
it's Barry Convex. Psychic Television has also used several Videodrome
samples over the years.

there have been a lot of samples from this excellent movie:

Cyberaktif (which, if we're all confused about SP, might be of interest to
those who don't know that this is a project w/SP members and Bill Leeb of
FLA) -- song: "Face To Face" sample: "see you in Pittsburg...<explosion>"
song: Ruptured Freaks (i think?) sample: "what's in the box...you're head
(is changed and spliced for the song to say "what's in you're head...the
box")

Skinny Puppy (yes, they did sample from Videodrome) -- song: "Fritter
(Stella's Home)" sample: "you'll forgive me if i don't stand around to
watch; i just can't cope with freaky stuff"

and... some other things i can't remember right now -- anyone else know
what i'm talking about?

It's from "Masterhit", from the Official Version album. Please forward a
gold star for me to affix to my forehead!

I wouldn't call it an excellent movie, but it was definitely odd.

Anyway, thanks to all of you who emailed me with the answer or posted. I
appreciate it a lot and now I can sleep at night.

Oh, and I didn't know about the samples list, or else I would have
checked there first. :)
