Funk is a music genre that always gets the crowd going. Yet, with the exception of weddings and ballroom functions, the style has been forgotten in the past!
For Funk’s Sake contains all of the class acts of the grooviest genre: James Brown, Earth, Wind, & Fire, Commodores, Curtis Mayfield, Kool & the Gang, Wild Cherry, KC & the Sunshine Band, and Stevie Wonder.
Here’s How Musicians Are Reacting to Avicii’s Death
We Need to Talk About ‘Beychella’
The playlist also has some more current artists. It includes the soundtrack from the Netflix Original Series The Get Down. The album is an ode to the seventies. Modern musicians like Christina Aguilera, ZAYN, Jaden Smith, Janelle Monáe, Miguel, 6LACK and Leon Bridges all come together—with the golden oldies— to channel the show’s time period. The brass and the beat in all of the soundtrack’s songs will make you want to do the hustle.
Only few contemporary artists are on the playlist in order to let the oldies shine through. A lot of people only listen to the latest and—supposedly— greatest. For Funk’s Sake lets the listener blast to the past; it lets the listener turn off the pop radio and get lost in a genre that has been lost for the past few decades.
Personally, I whip out this playlist whenever I am with a close bunch of friends and/or family. It gets everyone up and dancing!
This kind of music can make the pavement a personal runway. On a nice sunny day, on your walk to class, work, or the gym, this playlist can get you to move with the groove.
In the words of Bobby Womack, “It’s party time, come on now and groove.” Hit play and dance the night away!
Lover of all things escapism.
