Charly Says...

Last time on the Puzzler I asked you all what The Prodigy's first big hit was, in 1991. Well, so as not to keep you all in suspenders any longer...

Of course it was Charly!

Peaking at number three after entering the UK chart at number 9, Charly re-entered the chart again in 1996 (after Firestarter became a hit), and then again in 2004 (when the song was made available for digital download).

Next question...

One of the samples contained within Charly is part of the intro from James Brown's 1988 effort "Godfather Runnin' The Joint".

One of the most frequently sampled rhythmic breaks is from a James Brown tune from 1970. The drum break is performed by Clyde Stubblefield on the track. Can you name the track?
