Sample: Edie Brickell & the New Bohemians "What I Am" (1988)
Album: One For All
Producer: Grand Puba & Brand Nubian
Dallas jam band Edie Brickell & New Bohemians will always have a place on one-hit wonder countdowns thanks to "What I Am," a slice of '60s-style hippie rock that made its way to Miami Vice, Doogie Howser and the Billboard Top 10 in the late 1980s. Brand Nubian, one of the greatest rap groups of all time, used the song's Jerry Garcia-style guitar riff on "Slow Down," one of the best and most commercially successfully singles in their sizable catalog, and a centerpiece of their classic debut, One For All.
