Numbers – by Kraftwerk

Way before sampling ever became the norm, Afrika Bambaataa & the Soul Sonic Force used part of Kraftwerk’s “Trans Europe Express” in their own song, Planet Rock.

Numbers is basically the numbers 1, 2,3,4 in different languages, but with the beat and synths, it made for easy breakdancing music.
