SONG FOR TODAY: Chicago - Street Player


Just been listening to Chicago's 'Street Player'. And why? Because I have been informed that it was heavily sampled for one of my favourite 90's dance tunes... 

"'The Bomb! (These Sounds Fall into My Mind)' was a house music track by The Bucketheads, released in 1995. 'The Bomb!' was later dubbed into the project's sole album All in the Mind. It was a commercial hit in the UK in winter/spring 1995, reaching #5 in the singles chart. 

The track was produced by Masters At Work member Kenny "Dope" Gonzalez, and features samples from Chicago's "Street Player". 


The subtitle of the song is a mondegreen; the actual lyrics taken from the Chicago sample are "Street sounds swirling through my mind..." 

Chicago are an American band formed in 1967 in Chicago, Illinois. The self-described "rock and roll band with horns" began as a politically charged, sometimes experimental, rock band and later moved to a predominantly softer sound, generating several hit ballads. They had a steady stream of hits throughout the 1970s and 1980s. 


Second only to The Beach Boys in Billboard singles and albums chart success among American bands, Chicago is one of the longest-running and most successful rock groups in history. According to Billboard, Chicago was the leading US singles charting group during the 1970s. They have sold over 38 million units in the US, with 22 gold, 18 platinum, and 8 multi-platinum albums. Over the course of their career they have had five number-one albums and 21 top-ten singles..."
