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.

Classic!

Betty Harris with The Meters

oh man… I miss my record collection :frowning:
