Can we get much higher?

Joe writes: Haven't fully digested the Kanye album yet but the opening hook "Can we get much higher?" is brilliant. Is it sample? Does anyone know what from?

I don't think it's as good as 808s and Heartbreaks. A lot of it is ego-drive drivel, and some of the lyrics are shocking. DIsappointing.

I ended up on your blog when trying to identify the sample, so I might as well answer the question now that I've found the answer: "Can we get much higher" is sampled from a 1983 song by Mike Oldfield called "In High Places". The singer is Jon Anderson from Yes.
