What's your favorite funky song?

Talk about music - songs/albums that you love, and the ones that you don't.

Save you? What were they (JMQ) doing to you?
The way I see it, you've just added another band to your collection!

Gahahah, I wouldn't call it saving but... :lol:

Holy Hysus...my sad story is pretty much this: I was stuck in the 80's/90's till I found Jamiroquai. I was verrrry happy and bought all the cd's/dvd's there were to buy :lol: Then Amira and Lotta came by and introduced me to L'Arc~en~Ciel and all the Japanese awesomeness. Larukuz dinasty started and I even bought things from Japan. Hysus dinasty came too (t.shirt 8) :lol: and Roentgen).
Then another dinasty came by: The Dandy Warhols.

So it's pretty much this: The Verve. MJ, Prince, George Michael, The Who, Pink Floyd, Jamiroquai, The B52's, The Dandy Warhols, L'Arc~en~Ciel, Hyde, VAMPS and everything and anything I might find original and interesting. These are only the most common on my ipod. Most of the things really are weird and unsual for people my age and therefore I'm considered "odd". Guess what? Couldn't care less... :lol: :lol:

And now...not to go (too much offtopic): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5PQMwSoGQQ4&feature=grec_index and all the Covent Garden series (special thx: Amira)

You really know the thing to get to me <3

Currently, I have these two on repeat: Spain and Place to be performed by Chick Corea and Hiromi Uehara. More than a little eclectic, especially the first one but nonetheless a very nice display of both expression and musical skill.
I've only recently begun to "dig" the piano as an instrument and I must say that I found the idea of pure piano duets a bit redundant, but these two proved me wrong. :)

Caroli -I think it's great your variety of music! There's so much to love!
And yes, so funny you have The Who & Pink Floyd in there! (cuz you're young.)

Music love is so much more than one band. Or one instrument.
And I have to say, growing up my mom played a lot of different music -From Opera & Classical to The Who & Pink Floyd. I have a lot of music I know even if I don't claim it.

Jameerica -piano is sorta the basic instrument. Classical.
We used to have a dueling piano bar nearby. Never been.

I'm currently repeating Etta James "At Last" and "I'd rather go blind".
So much more simple and direct than her covers.

You know, I only heard of The Brand New Heavies after re-discovering Jamiroquai last year! :oops:
They seem to change singers often! I like the musicians and the music.

Okay, so I assume many of you don't know this group. The TIME "777-9311". Check out this rhythm of drums and bass. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=njmOcLPBn6w

Back in the day they were the Sh*t. And still are.
There was Prince, the Time, Vanity 6, Jamie Starr :wink: . (Again older brother & sister's music!)

Awesome drums! 80s are the era of great music, IMHO.

Giba, not sure if you enjoy football but the Black Eyed Peas will perform during half-time of today's Super Bowl game. My teams not there (the NY Giants.....who actually play in NJ) but I love football so I'll be watching......

I got to see a Parliament Funkadelic concert. The Godfather of Funk, George Clinton.
This is a pure jam for 3 1/2 hours, of songs that each play on for 20 minutes!
If you don't know this band or music, you don't know funk!

Old ones:

I like this! It started off with a smooth-jazz, sort of Sade-ish, laid-back feel to it, then the guitar kicked in at the end :D That was nice......

Not funky at all, but really struck me for some reason :lol: La javanaise!
Been listening to it on repeat, partly because I like it, and partly because I've been trying to learn how to dance :lol:
