Tuesday earworm: Crazy for Cold Cut's 'Stop This Crazy Thing'



Cold Cut is the English duo of Matt Black and Jonathon More, and as DJs, they pioneered sampling in the electronic dance movement in the ‘80s. With the help of reggae vocalist Junior Reid, Cold Cut released Stop This Crazy Thing in 1989. The song features a killer bass hook, an eco-friendly message and samples from Inspector Gadget, George Jetson, George of the Jungle and what I believe is Carol Burnett’s Tarzan call.

Cold Cut is still active although they haven't released any new material since 2006.
