It was a big hit about 3 years ago. It was number one for a while. It was used in a big ad campaign. And it was sung by some northern european rocker with long blond hair. Possibly called, I dunno, Jurgen Johannsson or something.

That's all I remember, apart from the fact that I quite liked it...

Actually it may not have been number 1, but it must have been close.

EVERYONE knows this damn song!

What was the ad campaign about, what was it selling ?

I honestly don't remember. Possibly cars. I couldn't say.

The chorus possibly didn't include words, but was just a kind of wailing sound a la Michael Jackson's Earthsong. Possibly.

Was just about to post that. Might I also add that it was piffle.

Not a work of genius by any means but I must profess a soft spot.

Okay my turn.

There's a song I keep hearing bits of with a sample from "Dont Stop Till You Get Enough" in it, maybe a remix of the song, it's recent, any clues ?

The Hybrid remix of Glorious is really quite lovely.

Xane, what style is the song? There's hundreds that do sample that track so you'll need to narrow it down.

I think it's hip-hop, because i recently heard a new remix of MJ's "Don't Stop Till You Get Enough".

I have totally forgotten who the hip-hop group are though.

That would be something to do with the fact someone mixed the track 'Breathe and Stop' by Q-Tip with 'Don't Stop Till You Get Enough' (Q-Tip was a member of A Tribe Called Quest).
