Argent on Eminem sample

HE’S GOT TWO SHITS TO GIVE: Rod Argent couldn’t be happier (duh) about Eminem’s extensive sampling of his 1968 Zombies classic “Time of the Season” for his “Rhyme or Reason, one of the most infectious tracks on The Marshall Mathers LP 2. “I loved the way he takes words and phrases from the original record and then spins off of the particular phrases,” Argent told Rolling Stone. “It kicks him off onto an avalanche of funny wordplay and invention. It's very amusing. It's a waterfall of words, and the associations just keep coming. When he's singing, ‘There's no rhyme or no reason for nothing,’ I love that it was almost identical in vowel sounds and mirrored the original, but at the same time completely inverted the sentiment of what was being said… I like things done in an inventive and creative way. I was excited when I heard he wanted to use it because I knew it would be a completely different spin on the song and it would turn into something else.” (11/7a)
