Top Ten Funky Songs That Make You Groove

The Top Ten

1 Uptown Funk - Mark Ronson Uptown 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

2 Knee Deep - Funkadelic Knee Deep - Funkadelic
3 Super Freak - Rick James Super Freak - Rick James
4 Word Up - Cameo Word Up - Cameo
5 Pick Up the Pieces - Average White Band Pick Up the Pieces - Average White Band
6 Jungle Boogie - Kool and the Gang Jungle Boogie - Kool and the Gang
