Vintage Classics expansion related songs

I recently discovered completely by chance, that the sounds of the “Vintage Classics” expansion are directly inspired by famous songs from the seventies or eighties.

For example, all the presets beginning with “human” are the sounds used in the song “Don’t you want me” from Human League.
The presets beginning with “Like the Silence” are the sounds for “Enjoy The Silence” from Depeche Mode.
“Holiday 80s” presets are for the song “Holidays” from Madonna.

Does anyone know which famous songs the other presets correspond to ?


Found other ones:

  • “Dust Bag” patches are the musical FX from “Another One Bites the Dust” by Queen (4 presets including the famous “Dust Bag Sync Sweep”)
  • “Robots” patches are the sounds from “The Robots” by Kraftwerk (11 presets)
  • “Get Enough” sounds from"Just can’t get enough" by Depeche Mode (9 presets)
  • “A Virgin” sounds: 5 presets from “Like a Virgin” by Madonna
  • “Baloon” sounds: 4 presets from “99 luftballons” by Nena
  • “Let’s go” sounds: 3 presets from “Let’s go” by The Cars
  • “Franky Says” are the sounds from “Relax” by Frankie Goes to Hollywood ( 8 presets; including the spit FX)

Let’s keep it going.

  • Separate Journeys is “Separate Ways” by Journey
  • Jumper is “Jump” by Van Halen
  • Get Fooled Organ is “Won’t Get Fooled Again” by The Who
  • Ace of Sign is “The Sign” by Ace of Base
  • I’m not positive, but the “Bobby” presets sound like “Baba O’Reilly” by The Who to me
  • About Love is “What About Love” by Heart
  • Addicted 2 is “Addicted To Love” by Robert Palmer
  • Toxic Love is “Tainted Love” by Soft Cell
  • Africa by Toto
  • Red Convertibles is “Little Red Corvette” by Prince
  • Take On is “Take On Me” by a-ha
  • T Sawyer is “Tom Sawyer” by Rush
  • Material is “Material Girl” by Madonna
  • Inside Cars is “Cars” by Gary Numar

The L.A. Cop presets made me think they were supposed to be “Axel F” by Harold Faltermeyer, but I don’t think they sound like it. Anyone know of a song about L.A. cops without bringing up west coast hip hop?
