Where does this repeated string refrain come from

    They’re both descending i-v-III-i progressions which I imagine have been used plenty of times before.

    OP said he was trying to remember where he knew the string refrain from which, I don't think unreasonably, I assumed meant he'd heard it before so not really a totally different concept. Fair enough if he just meant it reminded him of something else in which case everyone can be right! Even you. :lol::lol:

  5. Sounds like the begining of Norwegian Wood slowed down.

    It’s from some ska/reggae type track I’ll work it out when I get some motivation.

    Aye, its the same again. That's at least 2 that are close enough to be "the same" unless you break it down note by note.

    I'll bet a bollock you're thinking of Chim-Chimney from Mary Poppins.

    It reminded me of the start of Crossroads :lol:
  12. I thought it may be a movie or an old TV series.
    Yeah, it's not that. I was thinking of something more precise. Also, I've never seen Poldark or heard the theme tune, so I wouldn't be thinking of that.
    That's a good shout.

    That sounds like all the right notes to me. I did think that I had previously heard it on violin, though, like this song.

    Again that can't be where I heard it before because I've never heard of Major Lazer before, or this track.

    Maybe he got that sample from the same source.
    Well, it wasn't what I was thinking of.
    I see what you mean but no.
    That is what I meant. I may be mistaken mind.

    Never heard this track till on here, went into work on lates, first song on the radio. :eek:
  14. Spooky - or the unyielding power of the SMB.

    But where does the violin refrain come from?

    Is it the theme from Pipkins slowed down ?

    Is it not a bit of incidental music from a Bond fillum where he goes to the orient or sommat?

    Just an edited version of the Free Nelson Mandela sample for me, other than that I’ve not heard it anywhere before.

    Sounds like something from an 80s/90s film. Had a look at Bad Boys and Commando but not them

    Also similar to but not the same
