The Funkiest Songs Ever!

It is high time I did this. This is the place for the best funk you can find. No crappy songs please! :no-no:
I could not think of a better way to start than with this guy…

I have seen these guys live. You should all be jealous of me.

Michael Nesmith, pretty groovy fun song-also produced with minimal budget-black plastic, a light, and a fan. :slight_smile:

Aw, Damnit! Somebody beat me to Serpentine Fire. I was going to post it.
I remember one time when I was a disco in Portland Ore. This sexy girl was dancing in a cage above me when they played that song. It was then that I realized how cool Earth Wind and Fire are. IT WAS A DAMN EPIPHANY :sunglasses: !

You know in 2001 when they find a black obelisk and it means that there is some sort of leap forward for mankind?

Well that’s how I felt when I discovered this. From my top ten of all time tunes and memories of being off my swede as an 18 year old in Manc funk clubs.
