Back when I was doing that Let The Beat Build series for a full week straight, I made this post about a particular Wu-Tang song that has a pretty amazing build in it. There’s more to that song than just how awesome its build is though. I almost included all this stuff I’m about to lay on you in that post, but I decided it would be better to leave that song as it is in that post because of the series, and wait a bit before I came back and revisited it to let you know about some connections that stem from that song. They’re pretty sweet.
Here’s where the music from that Wu-Tang song came from I was talkin about.
Isaac Hayes – Walk On By
Isaac Hayes didn’t write that song though, Burt Bacharach and Hal David did, and it had already been around for about 5 years when he made his version. The original sounds completely different though, you wouldn’t even notice it was the same song except for it having the same lyrics. Well, and the same title.
Dionne Warwick – Walk On By
Now I thought it was that version that was used in a track from one of my favorite hip-hop albums of all time, but it actually turns out it’s this version. Thanks to Mike Allen for settin me straight.
The Undisputed Truth – Walk On By
J Dilla – Walkinonit
The Undisputed Truth indeed.
Doesn’t it sound a little bit like those record scratches at the beginning of that song are saying “Rick Dean”?
