Not the Funk I Want

Postby Giba7 on Tue Jan 04, 2011 12:54 am

Well, what do you think? I don't own this one, had to google it.
I think I like it! Electronic sounding.
Now this would be a good remix!

Confused, I thought the funk would save me. :shock:

I listen it on Youtube. I don't like it too much. :? The synth intro reminds me of Lady Gaga. :lol:

I love it! The intro sounds like something you might hear in an early sort of Renaissance dance piece. And then it shifts to a rather unrelated key for the bulk of the song (up a major 3rd if I recall correctly). Brilliant!

I just youtube'd it (yes I just used the word youtube as a verb) and I like it! I think this'll be a song that will sound really good being played live somewhere in the U.S......just sayin'.

Off-Topic:

I don't get the whole "let's release the cd everywhere on the planet except the U.S. and then announce tour dates for places other than the U.S. without even acknowledging when or if the cd will ever be released in the U.S. or when or if Jamiroquai will tour the U.S." treatment.

Say something, say something (sing like Mariah Carey does in her song "Say Something") :D

Ha! Shaolin! So true! And I use 'youtube' as a verb, also 'google'!
I'm kinda getting a bad attitude, and will be taking a timeout. :wink:

Well Caroli, I guess I should take solace in knowing we weren't the only people left out......

Giba, you enjoy this site right??? If so, don't stop doing something you enjoy just to spite someone. My guess is it won't hurt them in the least and you'll just miss your friends.....

I say we get all "Glenn Close" on them :evil: Remember her in "Fatal Attraction"? She had a line that went something like "I will NOT be ignored!!!!

I'm kidding of course :D

P.S. Prince just added another show for NYC (got my tix), Lauryn Hill is touring the U.S. (got my tix), Sade will be here this summer (got my tix), pre-sale for Janet Jackson tix go on sale tomorrow (I'll get my tix).........

Shaolin -you crack me up! I'll have to start using that phrase getting "Glenn Close" on ya! She was a wacko in that film.

Jealous of your concerts. If Prince comes, I'll go.
But I am going to P-Funk!

Fancy some lyrics?

"It’s like you always want to change me
Shake me
It’s like you really wanna break me
Turn me into you

And I want to turn it down when you play that
Music’s not the funk I want to hear
(Music is not the funk)
That’s Not The Funk I Want
Say what you like I’m walking away now
Spit those bricks at me again baby
I feel like breaking glass again

It’s like you want to spit the bricks out
Cut me (cut me down to size)
It’s like you think you’re gonna save me
(Save me)
But you’re burning me alive

You want to treat me like a bad dog
Chain me all day up to you
That’s not the way I wanna see things
There things, hate things that you do
I feel I’m breaking glass again

And I want to turn it down when you play that
Music’s not the funk I want to hear
That’s Not The Funk I Want
It’s not the way to move me
Say what you like I’m walking away now
Spit those bricks at me again
Spitting those bricks at me again babe
That’s Not The Funk I Want

Say what you like I’m walking away
If you spit those bricks at me again
Say what you like I’m walking away
If you spit those bricks at me again

It’s like you always want to change me
(It’s like you wanna change me)
I ain’t changing nothing over you
It’s like you always want to break me
(It’s like you wanna break me)
I still ain’t changing nothing over you
oh baby

I want to turn it down when you play that
(turn it down)
Music’s not the funk I want to hear
(Music is not the funk)
That’s Not The Funk I Want, I wanna hear
(It’s not the way to move me)
Say what you like I’m walking away now
(Say what you like)
Spit those bricks at me again
(Spitting those bricks at me again baby)
That’s Not The Funk I Want
That’s not the funk that I want from you
That’s Not The Funk I Want
Oh baby don’t you do that
Oh baby don’t you do that" :mrgreen:

Spit bricks??? :? Then again, I just listened to it and "spit bricks" is entirely plausible. A little goofy, but plausible nonetheless.

I'm hearing "spit bricks" alternating with "spin beats" as in: Music's not the funk I want; say what you want I'm walking away if you spin (spit) those beats at me again... as in she's keeps spinning the same old song on the turntable. The song could be a metaphor for the routine of the relationship, of course.

But I'm probably wrong. It wouldn't be the first - or last time. :lol:

Huuhhh? Whaaatt? Purple Rain definitely! And then go backwards in his catalogue! :wink:

And re: the lyrics "Not the Funk", I guess I'll have to google it to hear it again. :?
Thanks for posting Caroli! (didn't know of Wiki lyrics!)

Caroli -I mean "Purple Rain" album.

As for the lyrics, I hear "Spit those Bricks at me" and also "Spin those Beats".

I think it's a lashback to the criticism to his music.
Or possibly the shift to Hip-Hop, and criticism for that popularity.
Who knows!

Okay, so Purple Rain, the album, the movie, the musicians, actually had more of a "cult-following" where I lived. It was a certain group of people that followed him. (and for me, it was anti-MJ) :oops:

It was a film believed to be based loosely on Nelson's life (Prince). And if you don't watch the film, you can't understand the soundtrack. Really wasn't great acting, but I was young! And my favorite in it was Morris Day!

As for "Not the Funk" what do you think about the lyrics?

"Spit bricks" is still bothering me... maybe it's just not something we say in the states? The only thing I've ever done with bricks is either lay them or sh*t them. But spit???

Oh well... :lol:
