The sampled part is the striking horn sound and echoing break beat drum, from Owner of a Lonely Heart, which was produced by Trevor Horn at the time (1983). Horn also produced the Art of Noise, which some of the same types of samples can be heard in their work. Trevor Horn was the lead singer of the English group "The Buggles". Who Killed the Radio Star? Video Killed the Radio Star. Lol!
