Top Ten Funky Songs That Make You Groove


The Top TenXW

1Uptown Funk - Mark Ronson

Why? All of the songs listed under are original and this song steals from many of them especially the Gap Band. By Steals I mean in the way that it is not original but just something to bring back a sound using the sound of others. You can put this song in the list but its horrible to put it above such original and ground breaking artists that truly started something. If it were not for every artist below this there would be no Uptown Funk. Let's face it every song under is true funkiness. This is ok but the true classics are funkier and make you truly groove. No if and or but's.

Really deserves number 1 position

2Knee Deep - Funkadelic
3Super Freak - Rick James
4Word Up - Cameo
5Pick Up the Pieces - Average White Band
6Jungle Boogie - Kool and the Gang
7Crazy - CeeLo Green
8Do It All for You - Jerry Knight
9Early in the Morning - The Gap Band
10Superstition - Stevie Wonder

Actually comparing most of these artist to Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson is like that.

Comparing Stevie Wonder against Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson is like comparing the Beatles against One Direction.
