I know. It was more than Farian was credited with writing it on the Boney M Christmas album (as mentioned on that thread).

But she went out with a pedlo! Although this information has been removed from her wikipedia page.

And his oddly. Bigger fish to fry in that department probably.

Sampling's been good for Steely Dan, the Peg sample in De La Soul's I Know

https://www.whosampled.com/sample/609/De-La-Soul-Eye-Know-Steely-Dan-Peg/

got me interested in them and then the Fez sample in All Saints' I Know Where It's At got me digging for their albums.

Speaking of Steely Dan, one of the groups that Don Fagen and Walter Becker played in before forming Steely Dan together was called Leather Canary and featured a pre-fame Chevy Chase on drums.

Burial sampled Metal Gear Solid.

Listened to Archangel hundreds of times. Played MGS2 four or five times. Never connected them.

Quote
The American poet Rod McKuen translated the lyrics to English, and in 1964 The Kingston Trio released the first English-language version of the song. This is the version Terry Jacks heard, which became the basis for his rendition.

Quote
In a Songfacts interview with Terry Jacks, he said that after his version was released, he had dinner in Brussels with Jacques Brel, who told him about writing the song. "It was about an old man who was dying of a broken heart because his best friend was screwing his wife," Jacks said. "He wrote this in a whorehouse in Tangiers, and the words were quite different.

Krystal & Shabba Ranks - Twice My Age from '89 is an interpolation of SITS. Nice bit of digital dancehall.

I love the version by Spell, but I mustn't because Boyd Rice is a Nazi. The very definition of a guilty pleasure.

I typed 'Seasons in the sun cover' into youtube and started clicking.
That's an hour of my life I'm not getting back.

Although this version performed by what appears to be a Finnish death metal band and the Cookie Monster from Sesame Street is one of the funniest things I've heard in a while.

Chevy Chase also drummed, sang and played keyboards in the late '60s sunshine pop group Chamaeleon Church.

One of the reasons they'll tell you UB40 split up was because one of the factions wanted to do a country record (because country music is/was popular in Jamaica).

I think I heard this story on an episode of ChartMusicPodCast - and if I did, then I'd bet you did too.
