Earlier I was jammin' out to Sananda Maitreya formerly known as the artist Terence Trent D'Arby on spotify and his song called 'To Know Someone Deeply is To Know Someone Softly' came on. As soon as I heard it I instantly recognize the beat.
*sings* "Summer raiiiiinnn"- the song sounded just like Carl Thomas song "Summer Rain" or rather Thomas sounded like Terence Trent D'Arby.
So, I did some research and found out Carl Thomas & TTD both sampled the GENIUS that is Stevie Wonder 'Summer Soft' and Carl Thomas used TTD's version/beat.
SO, the music geek in me was overly excited about this and thought I would share. lol
Here are all three songs below:
