Perhaps it was used as an advert.


"Once You Get Started" by Rufus and Chakka Khan has been spoilt for me as I still associate it with a TV advert (I think it was for a car) back in the 1980's. Once that link has been made it's not easy to break the association!

I don't mind good songs used in ads so much. I just think there's sort of a funk shorthand in "Machine Gun" that sounds a bit facile or simplistic to me, which made it kinda easy for otherwise unfunky people in the '70s to emulate it. "Brick House" may seem overrun at this point, but there's something about the groove that still feels fresh to me…if that makes any sense at all.

On of the best moments to listen to Funk for me is after a days work. Yesterday I had to work during the world cup soccer match and the party afterwards. Just relaxing on some Funk, this time the 'Out Of Sight' compilation of James Brown's work, just chilling while going home...

Yes Resect,


Here is one I posted earlier with the guys running around New York having fun.



You can tell when it is because of the shot of the Billboard advertising the Godfather movie.

Yeah man, pure super heavy funk: http://www.google.com/search?q=The+Third+Guitar+-+Baby+Don't+Cry&hl=en


I think I remenber it from one of the first volumes of the Goldmine Soul Supply "The Sound of Funk" compilations...this is pure raw phunkiness, they don't make them like this no more


It's also on the mind blowing "Funk Spectrum II" compilation, this one is too hot to handle! there sure was a hell lot of killer tunes in the late 60's

All the "Spectrum" comps are damn fine.

BBE does them up right.


I Love that they named their label after this track.

Good piece on the making of a classic by OutKast…



post #255 of 431


413 views? That track is good, not wowing but very funky indeed, lyrics included.


Outkast's 'Aquamini' was unknown for me. I used to be into Hip Hop but that is in the past. I should check out that album...
