    I think 'Feel Good Hit Of The Summer' by Queens Of The Stone Age might just qualify...

    Just about every song done by the magnificent Shpongle. :D

    In particular the brilliant "A New Way To Say Hooray" on their second album Tales of the Inexpressible is littered with samples from Terrence McKenna on his experiences with DMT.

    Here's a link to the track (with a rather cheesy fan made video).
