A Guide to Samples in Girl Talk’s New Album, All Day


Yesterday, at long last, Girl Talk released his new album, All Day. He’s even offering it for free online, at Illegal Art, although the download queues are predictably massive. When you finally get that sweet, sweet zip file onto your hard drive, you’ll notice that Girl Talk’s two-year absence hasn’t dulled his mastery of the sample. Any new Girl Talk album doubles as an unofficial “Name That Tune” challenge, a trivia quiz for those who pride themselves on their pop-music literacy. But never fear! We have a cheat sheet. Your intrepid listeners at Flavorwire have done our damnedest to compile a list of samples on the new album, in roughly chronological order, after the jump. Tell us what we missed in the comments.
