when I here the first few bars I always cross my fingers and hope it's under pressure

His defense was he added the ting at the end of the sample... ha.

My sister had her iPod on shuffle in the car, and I heard it. I was like "YES! I LOVE Under Pressure!" then I heard "ice ice baby" and got mad.

And he got sued for it

It's called sampling

@CharlesTG It's called sampling

He claimed that he made it up and that it was his own. Thats not sampling thats STEALING. To sample you need permission from the original artist which he DID NOT get.

he did but either way, they're still both ok songs. pressure wins though.

Vanilla Ice's defense was that Under Pressure had an extra sixteenth note. Fucking snake, I hope he gets hit by a car.

maybe wanting him to get hit by a car is a little extreme...
