    It's almost like the piano bits from the David Axelrod track were pre-destined to be put together with this. Doesn't even sound like either of 'em needed pitching up or down at all... Genius!

    I hear it. The first four notes of melody sounds like replaying of The Madness Subsides.

    From Wikipedia: Tears For Fears - Sowing the Seeds Of Love borrows synthesizer elements of the 1971 piece "Sekoilu Seestyy" by Finnish artist Pekka Pohjola, also sampled by DJ Shadow for his track "Midnight In A Perfect World". Does anyone hear it?
