Morning Song – Apache

August 23, 2016

(One in a series of songs sampled by C + C Music Factory on their 1991 hit, “Things That Make You Go Hmmm“.)

Kool Herc—who has one of the most legitimate claims to the title, “Founder Of Hip-Hop”—called it “the national anthem of hip-hop“.

That’s high praise for a ’70s cover (of a ’60s English surf rock instrumental inspired by a ’50s Hollywood western) by a bunch of LA session musicians for a B-movie score.

But then, you try sitting still as the opening of The Incredible Bongo Band’s “Apache” starts playing. (Go ahead. Try…..See?) It’s a breakbeat that can’t be beat.
