In early 1964 Jim McGuinn and Gene Clark wrote the song You Showed Me, it was among the songs the two would perform as a duo. Before long they were joined By David Cassidy to form The Jet, and the trio recorded the song as a demo. Soon after that the band was joined by others and changed name again to The Turtles. The newly formed band abandoned the song and did not record it until 1968, when it was featured on their fourth album. The song is The Turtles biggest hit in the US, and it's been covered numerous times by artists including Salt-N-Pepa and The Lightning Seeds - a version that was featured in Austin Powers. The song has also been sampled many times, such as by U2 in 1997 for their song The Playboy Mansion. In 1989 You Showed Me was sampled and used on the debut album for De La Soul - 3 Feet High And Rising. The sample appears on Transmitting Live From Mars (interlude), However, the sample was not cleared, and that resulted in a $1.7 million dollar copyright infringement lawsuit. The lawsuit was settled out of court, but it set new precedents in sampling. Many album releases were delayed because of this, including De La Soul's second album, which was released eventually after removing many samples. As a result of this lawsuit major labels immediately began clearing all samples.
