21. The Orb Vs Rickie Lee Jones
An interview with an American soft rock singer may not be the most obvious choice to sample for a blissed-out 10-minute house odyssey, but The Orb used a clip from a promotional interview album featuring Rickie Lee Jones in their 1990 classic Little Fluffy Clouds. According to Uncut, she was still waiting for royalties 22 years later: "Whatever I might have wanted to like about that song is tainted by the bad behaviour of the band and their legal representation. They still have the chance to do the right thing. I'm not dead!"
