What are the earliest examples of these hooks/melodies? + Bonus Thread: Biters

NSFW:


Exhibit A is Enur's "Calabria" (YouTube, video is NSFW PG-13: skimpily clothed).

I could've sworn I've heard the horn part years and years ago... But I can't place it.




Exhibit B is a bit older and it's from "Se Acabo" by the Beatnuts (YouTube, about 1:17 in, audio is NSFW after 2:00). It's where he sings "No pare, sigue, sigue"... I've heard this a number of times in a lot of different songs but not in any songs older than this one. Can't imagine this is the use of those lyrics.




Exhibit C is even older and it's from a salsa song, specifically Joe Arroyo's "La Noche" (YouTube). The hook in question is about 0:59 in. Again, a very familiar tune. Has it been used again in a song?

<hr>

And, can you think of any other examples of artists blatantly stealing from another, and the result being a hit? For example, Led Zeppelin, Vanilla Ice, Rod Stewart, etc.

A) The horn sounded familiar, too, but I think I just know it from the song you posted. A Google search shows that Pitbull's "The Anthem" also uses it, but it's only from 2007.

This site says it's sampled from Rune's "Calabria", which came out in 2003.

B) No idea about the melody, but for shits and giggles here's the original music that was sampled:

Bonus question: without giving it much thought, every song Puff Daddy's produced?

I cannot tell you the name but I know that horn part is from something much earlier, like 96-00 and the second bit is basically translating "Don't stop, Get it, Get It" from many songs, originally from Luke's "i Wanna Rock" (starts at 2:00)
