A sampling masterpiece

In 1988, Freddy Bastone took Theme For Great Cities and sampled "This is the real life" from Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody to create a track called The Real Life. (This was three years before Simple Minds' released an album called Real Life.) Also samples the film Scarface starring Al Pacino and theres a bit of an old electro track in there (Man Parrish - Hip Hop, Be Bop).

The second track although very different, it is quite funky and grows on you
