Night Ripper is the third album by Girl Talk. It was released on Illegal Art in 2006. It is composed almost entirely of samples taken from other artists' songs, with minor original material by Gillis. Gillis has stated that the album was created as one long piece of music and then subsequently broken into individual songs.[1]

[edit] Track listing

Here is an incomplete list of samples used on the album, in chronological order. Note that many of the songs listed here sample other songs themselves; an example of this being the portion of "Passin' Me By" by The Pharcyde used in "Smash Your Head" simultaneously sampling both "Summer in the City" by Quincy Jones and "Are You Experienced?" by Jimi Hendrix. Neither Quincy Jones nor Jimi Hendrix, however, are credited in the liner notes, since their original music was only indirectly sampled by "Smash Your Head".
