Sax Sells

This isn't news, but this one sexy, languid – almost drunken – infectious sax riff may very well end up sampled in every song. Got it in my head and now can't get it out.

At top is Calabria 2007, Enur feat. Nastaja (Vybz Kartel Remix)

My current fav: The Anthem, Pitbull feat. Lil' Jon

The biggest seller: Destination Calabria, Alex Gaudino feat. Crystal Waters

Evidently the riff has been around for four or five years but has just recently taken on a life of its own. Oh, and it may be cursed.

1. Almost every other song that uses the riff has "Calabria" in the title somehow.
2. Crystal Waters' voice is featured in Destination Calabria – she is not.
