Welcome to the hip hop related, but not hip hop quiz. All the answers are songs that have been sampled by hip hop tracks in the 80s & 90s - so 60s & 70s funk/disco/jazz/soul and even rock.

Some of the songs are well known, others probably less so - hopefully they aren't too difficult to work out. Two correct answers per day. Any complaints that may trigger the forum censor will be warmly welcomed :lol:

1. Seed bearing structure that's full of sweet liquid
2. Tell someone to communicate their thoughts and feelings
3. All passionately enjoy the earth's light source
4. Oh my there are formicidae in one's undies I Got Ants In My Pants - James Brown :Y
5. In one of the corners of a snooker table there's a Saturn V Rocket in my pocket - Cerrone :Y
6. Questioning the long term plans of a person
7. Non-consumer version of Windows in the 90s
8. In the future what a watch tells you is the G.P you'll see.
9. Halt! (The surname of one of artists sounds like a barrel maker)
10. Exiting in the method of transport that requires lots of lift Leaving on a Jetplane - John Denver :Y

11. Stroll down 80s singer Kim's team
12. What you hear when someone walks past at nighttime - Footsteps in the Dark - The Isley Brothers :Y
13. A Roger Hargreaves character who's not a hater
14. Being born for a second time
15. Gabriel was one (surname of artist never won a golf major)
16. I won't know the answer to your queries so...
17. I want to go to Fat Tuesday with you - Take me to the Mardi Gras - Paul Simon :Y
18. Remove yourself from whatever it is!
19. 8:21am, 10:14pm, 3:57pm, not bad
20. Twas me that took photos of the top cop in town - I Shot the Sheriff - Bob Marley :Y

Almost there... reverse the order of those two words and add a couple in the middle.

I know it's too much to expect people to hammer Discogs and then cross reference on WhoSampled. I'll come up with extra clues tomorrow :)

I know it's too much to expect people to hammer Discogs and then cross reference on WhoSampled
