Another shock-of-the-new how-the-fuck-had-I-never-heard-this-before?! moment when this came up on my Launchcast, like whoa: this De La track from their 2001 non-starter AOI: Bionix (oh, so that's why I don't know it...) is based around a sample of the squiggly keyboards from friggin' Macca's "Wonderful Christmastime" (they refer to it lyrically, too, in the chorus). The lyrics may or may not be notable; I honestly didn't notice much beyond that shocking sample. What a great idea, and how'd no one think of it before? (Oh, you mean b/c they're De La?)
