A close cousin of sampling, interpolation is less of a direct copy-paste of a song and more the borrowing of melodies and lyrics to create a new tune that sounds… wow, just so familiar.

There seems to be a fine line between interpolation and inspiration. There are so many songs that are inspired, but go without recognition.
