Can you believe I just discovered this song last week??!….Forgive me funky people
“Taurus, Aries and Leo” is the name of this tune. Now isn’t this such a great damn groove? Did you really expect anything else from the J.B.’s?

Slave’s bass licks are cwaazy, and their funky beats are on point…a definite booty shake tune

YEP! “Crossing Over the Bridge” is that genuine 70’s soul sound with no overproducing on this tune. Tha real deal. Great music, a simple tune..just RIGHT. Inez Foxx is gritty, raw and soulfunky. Tha Real Deal.
I love this video for so many reasons. First, “Heartburn” is a kickin’ tune. Two, her voice is amazing. Three, the backup singers and band where killin’ it, and Four, she looked fabulous….and OH! those legs in silver shimmer.
From the 1st guitar rift, reminiscent of the 1970 blaxploitation film soundtracks, the groove is, and remains funky. Alicia Keys’ strut within the shadow, is just so cool, and so fine…Foxy Brown, Cleopatra Jones and Shaft would be so proud. Tina Turner too, with all that slick and funky shimmying. Can’t get enough

Alright Y’All…first of all I am huge fan of Snoop’s music. I love the way he raps to me so smoothly and his jams are always so funky and tight. “Peaches N Cream” does not disappoint. Produced by Pharrell, it has the groove of the 70’s, the smoothness of Snoop and the deep funkiness of the Gap Band’s Charlie Wilson. A true Delight

Joe Cocker was a true SOUL MAN inside and out. He will be missed.
A few days ago I experienced Stevie Wonder Live, for the 1st time, and it was one of the greatest concerts I’ve ever seen
This man is a genius, his lyrics are deep and his vision is spiritual and real
Stevie Wonder’s music from the 70’s is my favourite Stevie Wonder and “Living for the City” is one of the best
I remember as a youngster hearing this song for the 1st time and thinking..damn this is hot. It became one of my favourite dance tunes that always made the rotation. Needless to say I learned quickly that funk comes in many different shades and I LOVE that
