Small Sample Size: Who Did it Best?

Not much of a fan of rap music around these parts but this remix is growing on me. Sticky hook and a good mashup. And that cover image from soundcloud is dope.

I remember the original Fugees track, because although it was a 'minor hit' in the America it was a repeat offender in my Sony Discman headphones because it's a damn good song.

What about that hook though? Well, it's pretty good in the original, which came out in 1987 (!!!). I'm going to let that sink in for a minute, because that is 25 years ago. Enya is a not-even-a-little-bit-guilty pleasure at Chez GJAW. How the hook came to the Fugees is anyone's guess, but credit to their producer(?) for hearing the truth in it. Well played.
