@nancyrost can you give an example of interpolation. I read some of the Wikipedia article. Too far over my head,

@Mandolinda The Wiki link didn't paste correctly and went to one about math. Here's the correct link.

Interpolation is prevalent in many genres of popular music; early examples are the Beatles interpolating "La Marseillaise",[1] among four other interpolations in the 1967 song "All You Need Is Love",[2] and Lyn Collins interpolating lyrics from the 5 Royales' "Think" in her similarly titled 1972 song "Think (About It)".[3]

One genre where interpolating (as well as sampling) is highly prevalent is hip hop music; a prominent example is Stevie Wonder's "Pastime Paradise" interpolated in Coolio's hit song "Gangsta's Paradise".
