Corrosive Shame
Therapy for Life
Sometime ago, somewhere on the Web, I found a great little site that listed what films had been sampled by what music. It was something like /s107.net but more complete.

Can anyone help?

In other news, I took too many photos at Dresden Dolls last night and one of the front row put her hat on my head. I hope she didn't have nits.

Yeah but he probably caught girl germs off it.

There used to be a sample site that was then hacked and never resurrected. It was actually quite big and had a proper database. Can't remember the URL, either.

I think I know what you mean. It was called something like "The Internet Top X Sample Site" (where I think X was some odd number like 1237. You could look up songs, artists and "sample producers" and see what was used and where.

IIRC, Blade Runner was the most sampled film, and NASA were the most sampled "sample producer".

It vanished a while ago. I don't know why. It doesn't seem to have reappeared. It was a great site.

That's it! Fortunately, you can download a text version of the data, which I shall do forthwith.

The Old Data Has Errors

Watch out, that data has many errors. I am the creator of the s107.net site, and I am using the most complete copy that I could find of that original list to help populate the new site. I am painstakingly researching every ascertain from that original and posting information only when I have no doubt of it's correctness (I have a friend who runs a video store, and that helps a lot. Also, Limewire has been a real boon). I'm doing this in my spare time, for fun. As for the "real database", the s107 site is an experiment in XML parsing with PHP, where each page is actually a data-storage document. I'm working on various sorting strategies now. You can browse all the listed sources by going to the start page and clicking on "show all". Or just follow this link… http://s107.net/index.php?index=A&all=sources

Thanks for checking out s107.net! Please contribute if you have information.

I wanted to go to that gig! But they sold out before i could get tickets. Was it any good?

I believe they are playing at Leeds Festival, which i am attending, so may have the chance to go see them there instead :)
