Sampletastic: America & Janet Jackson

I was sitting in McDonald's smashing an M&M McFlurry when this song came on:

America - Ventura Highway.mp3

Which can be very clearly heard in the song "Someone To Call My Lover" by Janet Jackson:

Janet Jackson - Someone To Call My Lover.mp3

As far as Janet Jackson goes, "All For You" was the beginning of the end for me. I can't listen to anything by her after this album, it just sounds like she's trying waaaaaaay too hard. But this album was decent and "Someone To Call My Lover" was one of my favorite songs. I really like the original too - it makes me want to ride in the back of a pickup on a desolate road and watch the landscape crawl by. Or something like that. I like how they took such a mellow sounding guitar and blended it with with an uptempo beat. Good shit.
