Watch the (well known) part in Jurassic Park where they stranded next to the T-Rex paddock and are watching the ripples form in puddles and glasses during the T-Rex’s approach… does anyone else think that booming footfall sounds eerily familiar? Rather like the thundering boomy sound at the very beginning of Shpongle Falls (1st song on Are You Shpongled).
To those “In the know”: Am I right?
The first time I noticed the similarity it brought chills down my spine. Mostly because the opening sounds Are You Shpongled have been branded into my psyche… When I first hung out with my girlfriend we ended up sitting on the couch and listening to Are You Shpongled abooouuuttt… 5 or 6 or 7 times in a row. The exact count is still fuzzy to me, because that was also the first time that her or I experienced what is now known to us as “The Shpongle Time Warp Effect”. After that night we were together for 6 shpongled years.
Um… so back to reality now. Yeah, what’s with the sample?
