It's pretty known that Shove It (the song) includes samples of FBG and Flash's Theme. The live version is even more evident. However, I had never heard about anyone mentioning that the Stand Up For Love rythm (or drums if you prefer, even if they are not) might be the actual WWRY beat, only that speeded-up and with the low frequencies removed. Is it only me who feels the similarity?

i'll answer your questions in the order you asked them:

1. yes they may or may not be drums
2. they are NOT the actual WWRY beat
3. speeded up and with the low frequencies removed? - so basically an entirely different beat
4. yes it is oNLY YOU who feels the similarity

Fat Bottomed Girls sample is at 1:18. Freddie's "y-y-y-yeah!" is also obviously a sample, though I can't identify the correct track.
