As most people will know, the song 'Shove it' contains a lot of samples from Queen songs.
I recognize some of them, but I think there are much more then what I hear listening to the record.

Does someome know which samples were used in the song?

At this moment I remember:
- footstomp & handclap from We Will Rock You
- 'Fantasy' from Bohemian Rhapsody (the part from 'Is this just fantasy')
- 'Aaaaaahhhhhh' from Fat Bottomed Girls (the part which comes before 'Are you gonna take me home tonight')
- small guitar part from Flash (from the part 'Flash Aahaaaa - small guitar part.... where Brian plays guitar instead of for example 'Saviour of the universe')

Anyone knows more samples??

In a similar vein, there's one snippet in the 12" version of Machines for which I can never pinpoint the origin.

It's the sample just before "Flash!", and is a brief snatch of a large harmony part.

Any ideas?

Isn't that the same sample that is used in 'Shove it' too?
In 'Shove it' it appears several times, and for the first time directly in the beginning just before the guitar and the first "What do you do?"
Don't know where it comes from actually.

Also I think I heard a sample from 'Ogre battle' in 'Shove it'. It's from the part of 'Ogre battle' right before the "AH AH AH AH AAAHHHHH" and it's in 'Shove it' right after "If you think that's true better get a new hat". It's on more places I think, but it is longer there.

Quite possibly that's the same sample Jeroen, but as I haven't listened to Shove It in probably over a decade, and I don't intend to listen to it again in the foreseeable future, I couldn't say for definite.

Yes, it's the same, and sounds to me like a vocal "Lo..." from Somebody To Love

I think the first ones of this fragment are the same samples?
Does anybody know if the last sound is a sample too, and if so, from which song?

And I think that in this fragment the first ones are from 'Bicycle race' and the last ones are from 'Fat bottomed girls'.

Also here are two of the samples mentioned above.
