In honour of the International Film Festival Rotterdam that’s going on right now, not only a posts about samples from other songs, but also from film!

In 1990 Primal Scream released the song Loaded. Most prominently, it features a sample from their own song I’m losing more than I’ll ever have from 1989. says the bass-line is replayed from the Rolling Stones’ Sympathy for the Devil from 1968. You’ll also hear a drumloop taken from the 1989 white label remix of What I Am by Edie Brickell & The New Bohemians. On a side note, you might recognise that song from the version that Tin Tin Out and former Spice Girl Emma Bunton covered in 1999.

But there’s also some spoken word samples in it. The most striking comes from the the 1966 film The Wild Angels (imdb + trailer). A biker film in which Peter Fonda plays a biker that tells off a preacher and says they want to be free to do what they wanna do …  and they wanna get loaded.
