Sounds with Sweets: Funk Primer!

 

Chris Fryar is back with another Sounds With Sweets playlist sure to put you in a Funky mood!

"Funk music is a genre of music after my heart and soul. When the groove is super funky, you can’t help but move some part of your body to the beat. While it’s always been danceable, the term “funk” (as it applies to music) doesn’t necessarily refer to something you would have heard in a disco in the late 70’s.

If these tunes make you want to move some part of your body…then the funk is alive and well within you. If not, try listening to this playlist while behind the wheel of a really long, early 70’s model car such as a Cadillac DeVille, Buick Electra 225, or a Chevy Impala and see if that doesn’t help change your disposition.

Is this the definitive list of funk music…certainly not. But for the uninformed and relatively unfamiliar, this would be a fine place to start your exploration of the genre.” -Sweets
