What I meant was, part of the song (at the very beginning) has the word 
"Amadeus" being chanted. They
kept repeating the sample where the guy says "Amadeus" before they start 
singing the word (regular
repetition). Have you ever noticed that? At the beginning, it sounds like 
they used digital technology
to repeat the word "Amadeus" a few times.

I hate Mozart anyway.


 The digital repetition is the looping.

If your definition of a concept is too general, it ceases to be a

If you want to say that repeating the name Amadeus in a song is
looping, I'm not going to argue with you.  However, I will not adopt
your definition...  everything becomes looping under that definition,
and talking about looping ceases to be intrinsically interesting...
it's like talking about any kind of music but by using a term made
meaningless by being too inclusive.

Are you confusing repetition and looping?
