Subject:        Rap Song Samples Luhrmann WS's R+J

The rap song "Smash Something" by Redman begins by sampling the music
played during the Chorus near the beginning of the Luhrmann WS's R+J.
(It's the track that sounds reminiscent of the end of Carl Orff's
"Carmina Burna."   At the start of the video, we see a take-off of The
Bride of Frankenstein.)
