Holy funk, this song is so good. I dare you to listen just once. You can’t. Unless you’re a masochist. In which case, do your thing.
In the mood for a 3-for-1? Okay, sure.
So, if you’re like me, what probably first drew you into “Them Changes” is that opening drum beat, right? You might recognize it as a sample from Ice Cube’s “It Was a Good Day,” which is another all time favorite jam.
But, if you were raised listening to oldies, you probably know that Ice Cube actually borrowed it too, sampling The Isley Brother’s “Footsteps in the Dark.”
