1. Karen Young, “Hot Shot”

2. Barry White, “I’m Gonna Love You Just A Little Bit More Baby”

3. The Originals, “Down To Love Town”

Appears throughout “Burnin’”, according to most people who have listened to both simultaneously for two hours.

4. Edwin Birdsong, “Cola Bottle Baby”

Confirmed by the Discovery liner notes and also most people with ears as appearing in “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger.”

5. George Duke, “I Love You More”

Also confirmed in the Discovery liner notes, so no crowdsourced web-investigation necessary. It appears on “Digital Love.”

6. Barry Manilow, “Who’s Been Sleeping In My Bed”

It forms the basis of “Superheroes,” according to the liner notes.

7. ELO, “Evil Woman”

Most Internet conspiracists agree the lick after the phrase “Evil Woman” forms the main riff of “Face To Face.”

8. Cerrone, “Supernature”

At least one major music publication has claimed the original synth hook was slowed down and filtered to become “Veridis Quo.”

9. Sister Sledge, “Il Macquillage Lady”

A cursory glance at whosampled.com would suggest this song is the basis for “Aerodynamic.”

10. Black Sabbath, “Iron Man”

Its supposed presence in “The Brainwasher” is the source of endless commenter debate.
