Parasite Eve[edit]

What level does it sample? Cause I can't find it.

Picture[edit]

Can we get a possibly clearer picture of the single cover?--As4xx 21:27, 24 January 2007 (UTC)

I've uploaded a larger pic and replaced the old pic, should be clearer now.The93owner 22:33, 7 February 2007 (UTC)

Plagiarism[edit]

Not only on the Legend of Zelda, but on a song I have, a remix by DJ Babyboi of "You Are The One," the intros of the two songs are very similar. Doesn't anyone else think this? The beat is a little different, but it's pretty much the same. I posted a music sample for listening. I got the remix of that song in 2004.

Remix of the song "You Are The One." Intro of this song is similar to Omarion's "Ice Box." — 30 seconds.

About Plagiarism[edit]

Marceux 05:55, 12 March 2007 (UTC)

At first when I read Chrono Trigger on the main page, I thought so myself that the song took samples from the game, specifically "Memories of Green", but after a closer listening to the original track from Chrono Trigger, not only are they different structurally, they are a little different melodically, as well. The song surely reminisces Chrono Trigger because of the clock-sounds in the background and the less-than-welcoming melody, but I doubt that Timbaland or his team of beat-makers would take a sample from Chrono Trigger and blatantly attempt to recreate the themes of the game with the clock sounds and such. Some may consider it an homage or stealing, but I just call it an coincidence now. Oh well, I had my fun being angry at it while it lasted. Just don't cry plagiarism unless you're sure.


Plagiarism Controversy Insight[edit]

I hope none of you are mad, but I did find a rather believable claim by a radio DJ in my local area. Check out the section and listen to the audio clip. --ShawnHorton 08:48, 24 April 2007 (UTC)

Album Status[edit]

Correct me if I am wrong, but is a CD single still considered to be part of the original album? So, if that was the case, if an album is current, wouldn't the CD single be valid in being labeled "current"? Apparently Dont mess wit me(Tay) doesn't think so. I'll let him remove the tag of current album, but I think it's rather undue.--ShawnHorton 03:22, 25 April 2007 (UTC)

ummm yea hey im not im not a guy reads ma page and second of all i removed tha tag becuz "Ice-box" is not a album its a single that tag is for ALBUMS not SINGLES..=] Aint no stoppin me + ma sis cuz we da baddezt! 13:53, 25 April 2007 (UTC)

Actual producer[edit]

is this an accurate edit? i'm not about to buy this album, but i've heard varying things -- that it was produced by Tim, produced by one of his proteges, and now this says both. can someone who has the CD confirm this? iTrey 22:59, 6 April 2007 (UTC)

Well I don't know who exactly produced this song (I don't have the CD), but if Timbaland did produce it (I'm pretty sure he did), it is likely that his protege Nate Hills (aka Danja) might've co-produced the song. Danja has been tagging along with Tim and producing various songs with him. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by The93owner (talkcontribs) 20:44, 11 April 2007 (UTC).
i know 'bout Danja, however, the whole thing surrounding this song is how it was supposedly produced by two other proteges of Tim known as "Tha Court," which i'm assuming are the two other dudes listed here. he's mentioned them as helping him put the song together in an interview, Danja wasn't involved in this specific song. so i'm just wondering if production is solely creditted to them or not, cuz i've read some things that would indicate that. 134.69.146.97 23:22, 15 April 2007 (UTC)

Timbaland?[edit]

Is Timbaland at all featured in the song? If so, how come he doesn't get any credit? 72.82.21.203 03:56, 15 May 2007 (UTC)

Timbaland isn't featured in the song-- he produced it. The article clearly stated this fact. ShawnHorton 07:07, 21 May 2007 (UTC)

Yes, but in the album work on the page, it says that Timbaland is a "featured guest." 72.82.22.247
Probably because he was featured in the video and may be the one singing in the bridge.

About the plagarism[edit]

It's strange that Aquatic Ambiance from the Donkey Kong Country game is never mentioned as the sample, for Timbaland clearly took that song and used it for Ice Box. Oddly, I never noticed about the Legend of Zelda dungeon song, and that's one of my favorite SNES games--and I still own it. But...listen to Legend of Zelda and Donkey Kong Country songs together, and you will notice that the "riffs" are similar. However, Ice Box has its sample (at least mostly) from Aquatic Ambiance. There's no denying it when you actually listen to it. SilStellar 07:14, 11 August 2007 (UTC)
