    <ul> <li><strong>Jean Pierre Mirouze - Sexopolis</strong></li> </ul> I’m afraid I’m going to hurt the musical beliefs of some readers. But when I’m listening to such exceptional Grosfonk tunes, everything that has been written without some Funky-music sample, sounds so lame to me, it sounds so worn and shitty that the simple fact it exists makes me sad. The beauty of Funky-music is the melody, which speaks for itself, no need for adornments like those half naked semi-sluts or...

    <ul> <li><strong>Fatfonk: Francois Feldman - You want every night</strong></li> </ul> Francois Feldman is a French Pop-music singer known for his tacky songs, as shitty as Bon Jovi’s… But before the Top 50, he did some Funk. Shame on me: I’ve been listening to this song for one straight week. But in some cases,  shame feels so good. Akin to junk-food, sometimes Funky-music tastes even better when it’s greasy and gross: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MvOoDI4Vc2g

King Curtis Ousley – Hold on, I’m coming Soul-music is a style of Funky-music intended for guys would want to take it easy, for those who don’t feel like driving at 120mph, and will probably spend the rest of the day in a semi-conscious state:

Fred Wesley &amp; The J.B.s &#8211; You can have Watergate This is a major song, James Brown at the top of his art. The lyrics are fabulous, the « poor black » asks the rich and the powerful for charity. Don’t think it is a metaphoric way of describing the watchmaking blogger’s state of mind, [&hellip;]

Fatfonk: Gibson Brothers – Cuba
Publié le 31 March 2015
Gibson Brothers’ “Cuba”, akin to all great Funky-music tunes, sits between Electro and Soul with, as a bonus, a magnificent dancer with two-mile legs, so long that they remind me of one of those Imperial spaceship from StarWars:

Fatfonk: Dionne Warwick &#8211; You&#8217;re gonna need me Grofonk: something classic, Dione Warwick’s “You’re gonna need me”, less popular than “Don’t make me over”, but even greater; this is the proof that one can never be wrong going for a classic:

Stevie Wonder – Another Star, original version
Publié le 26 January 2015
Exceptional: 1981, akin to all the great Funky-music tunes, “Another star” sits between Electro (a little bit) and Funky-soul, and immerses us into a eurhythmic melody. The best Stevie Wonder’s song to date?
