Indian song sampling WANT ME, WANT ME

Here's a video of a Indian song that sounded similar to 'WANT ME,WANT ME':

Instead of saying they copied 'WANT ME, WANT ME', I think you can say they sampled it just like the samplings in '60s70s80s'. ^_^

hey! im a big fan of ur site. i visit it everyday! the latest update abt the Indian song: im Indian and the songs name is 'Aa Khushi Se Khudkhushi Kar Le' from the movie Darling. i was shocked wen i 1st heard the song. i was so excited bcz it was Namie's song. theres anotehr song from the movie Waqt called Miraksam that has the same begining sample. this is so exciting bcz this was how Shakira became popular aftr her song "Shaka Laka La" was copied in an Indian song :D YESSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!! :D this news is also on Wikipedia wen u search fr "Queen Of Hip Pop" under Tie-Ups. my name is Suraj, im 16 and i love Namie ALOT. shes the best. hope she comes to perform here :D thank you for the regular updates. tc.

It's called sampling only if credit is given to the original writer and composer, like how NL/RS/WAF all credit the respective original writers and composers (even WAF, whose only similarity to the original is the title and melody of the first "WAF" in the chorus).

This song is an illegal RIP OFF.

absoluetly. its mentioned its illegal on Wikipedia. but in India, theres nothing really done abt foreign song rip offs :) lol. there are like a million songs that are copied in Indian songs. search for Pritam on Wikipedia, he's the music composer. a list of songs are given along with its sample. and NAMIE IS MENTIONED :D i was so angry wen she wasnt credited on the news. i hope she is credited.... this cud be a stepping stone to popularity in India for Namie :)

I've heard that the girl's name is Nisha Kothari, is this true?...

Well, I really love Want Me, Want Me, such a cool song... ;-)

And I think a lot of plagiarism happens in India, but I just wish they Namie-san credit...

Suraj said...

yea... there r a million songs tht r copied from foreign ones. if they were to credit the original composers/artists, id have no issues. i wonder if Namie even knows abt this O_o

Wow... they used "WANT ME, WANT ME" as a sample, it's no 1:1 copie or cover version. But what reminds me more of Namie's song is the video. Some parts look like Namie's video...
But well... "WANT ME, WANT ME" is a GREAT song ^^
