If that was Scooter, I'm impressed.  It sounds just
like they sampled the vocals off that famous Supertramp
song off the 'Breakfast in America' album and just
sped it up a bit.  The intonation and spacing was
too close to original IMHO, to be anything other
than a direct sample - at least for the vocal portion
of that song.  I'd *swear* Scooter didn't sing it.

I was when that stuff was popular, quite a Supertramp
fan as a young kid.  It didn't hurt that I actually lived
next door to the guy who played sax/clarinet for them
(John Heliwell) from early '81 to mid '84.

I also have a *pretty* keen ear for music,
especially rhythm/pacing/vocalization.
