In music, I always love weird samples - things that you don't get out of sample packs or drum machines. I think I got into it from IDM music, and the work of the Japanese artists Kashiwa Daisuke and World's End Girlfriend - they'd use these samples that make you feel like you're in a movie scene, yet fit beautifully in with the music. The breath sample at 4:58 in Kashiwa Daisuke's Stella is a memorable one.
Also interesting to see weird samples hit the pop consciousness - obviously the multitude of "Ha", "Uh", and "Hoo" samples in modern hip-hop come to mind, but also the weirder ones like the bed springs you hear in Jersey Club and trap music (google "trap bed springs sample" for examples).
Though I have to admit, a part of me wanted 'The Archers' to be about the continuing adventures of Sterling and Mallory.

I specifically remember watching the scene described in the opening paragraph because Gus's shoes distracted me out of the scene. It didn't quite fit for me.
