The Ten Dopest Samples Of “Don’t Look Any Further” - in Honor of the Late Dennis Edwards

When the music world mourned the late Dennis Edwards, the Temptations’ former lead singer who died Friday, February 2, 2018, just a day shy of his 75th birthday, several tributes mentioned that his biggest solo hit, “Don’t Look Any Further” was one of the most sampled tunes in music history.

And that appears to be the case.

According to the website WhoSampled.com, which many consider the authority on these things, “Don’t Look Any Further” has been sampled (or interpolated) for 82 different songs or remixes of songs since its initial release in 1984.

In honor of the late Edwards, plus Siedah Garrett and the song’s creators (songwriters France Golde, Dennis Lambert and Duane Hitchings, with Lambert producing and Paul Jackson, Jr. responsible for the famous bass and drum programming), djrobblog came up with a ranking of the ten best samples of “Don’t Look Any Further.”

These are ranked using only one criteria: opinion. Check out the rankings by scrolling through the list below.

Honorable Mention: “Where It’s At” - XVII feat. Pimp C & Too $hort

Aside from the normal rap fare about pussy and more pussy, this is actually a pretty good sample of “Don’t Look Any Further.” It wasn’t the only time Too $hort was connected to the track, but it’s the only time you’ll see him here. XVII is from the hip-hop group UGK.
