Postby G » 19 Sep 2008 18:10

Well just got flashed driving 170kmph freaking out to san fransisco and leo leo of ex cel...sweatin, white knuckles, vains in my neck were expanding...anyway for as long as i listend to both o these crackers i was never 100% sure of the lyric(s)

so, here goes, correct me if i'm worong please...

Leo leo = "it is strong like the lion" and the other part where it goe "latromba"??? what is that saying man and where do you get that lyric from??? What is the inspiration behind it...if any..."I was/we were mashed" is also a good answer though, doens'nt have to be deep like...

Sanfrancisco = "Keemosabo" haha stupid to write it like this but honestly after 10 billion times o listening to this (fkn) great piece I still don't know the words and now i am payin a fine for it in a couple o weeks!

when listening to 808 state put your seatbelts on and turn of the lights 8)

I always thought it was, "Think you're strong like a lion?".

ok...think your strong like a lion it may be...might not be though... and the other lyrics are? Can anyone (including graham, agent nick, markus, jon from ireland all u know it alls out there) confirm what the lyrics are???

Also that ibiza gig on the optical video was obviously dubbed but is the original footage anywhere to be found? looked like a good gig to have live in yur collection of 808 gems...

San Francisco: Here we go - you must follow.

Leo Leo: make you strong like a lion.

Both are my oppinion. Don't expect much more information about it, as you know one of the unwritten forum rules is that samples aren't discussed...

The Leo Leo one is a close to public domain as it gets. Used in 100's of tunes. My best guess is some Jamaican origin. Ahm.

- and I have been after it for years.

San Francisco:

'My impetigo' or
"D'ya mind if I go' or
'We like the white snow' or
'It's just a stone's throw'

(Sorry, only joking. It is very difficult to pick out but I'm not convinced with 'you must follow', though)

any chance of Graham personal mailing markus to personal mail me so we don't discuss the sample on the forum incase....well I dunno but just incase ...I mean I am G aka Souflex aka warped 808 mind aka still can't sing/chant the right fkn lyrics after so long...

won't ask wat Bjork is singing about on qmart then...my guess is same as sam brown on pink floyds dark side of the moon...voice used as instrument rather than saying anything in particular....woh i'm gettin spacy again :wink:

Please...help me clear this up...personal mail or on forum...you choose, I won't say aything, only in my car and with headphones on when I'm ripped on Hollands finest weed...

I want to know what both tracks say and what (if any) is the inspritation behind it...

Amen

Ooops, I just posted the origin of the "Leo Leo" sample and then I remembered that it might be a bad idea to give the artist name and the song title on a public forum.

Maybe the moderators can tell me the correct way to get the information across. The track can be heard on amazon and I could provide a link via pm, if that is alright.
