Little Fluffy Clouds
by The Orb
"Little Fluffy Clouds" is a single released by the British ambient house group The Orb. It was originally released in November 1990 . It makes extensive use of clips from an interview with Rickie Lee Jones in which she recalls picturesque images of her childhood. The song also uses a harmonica sample from Ennio Morricone's The Man With The Harmonica (from the film Once Upon a Time in the West) and parts of Electric Counterpoint, a piece for multi-tracked guitars composed by Steve Reich and recorded by Pat Metheny. Reich was "genuinely flattered" by The Orb's use of his work and instructed his record company not to sue.
Jones' record company was upset at the unauthorized use of her voice and initially sought to pursue a claim via the legal system. However, when Jones herself heard it, she is reported to have disagreed, saying: "What the hell you doin'? This is good!" Big Life chose to settle out of court for an undisclosed sum of money for use of her voice on The Orb's recording.
