Funk Music A To Z

Updated on February 24, 2016
bluesradio profile image

Marc has worked in Radio for years, his folks having started a jazz station when he was a teen and he has been on WMUR, WNCU, and now WCOM

On another website, we had a lot of fun by creating the challenge of thinking of music in a category and going through it A To Z. There has been so much good funk music that I thought I would try to rehash that game here on Hubpages.

It can definitely be fun, and help people understand a wide variety of music...After we go through this one, I am thinking about doing ones for Blues and Jazz......EIther the Song or the Artists (can be a group or individual) need to have their name begin with the letter...

So, I will get us started with A and we will go with Atomic Dog, George Clinton's consumate Funk Song and a definite classic.....Know it's someone''s turn to bring us a B.....
