Mark Ronson - Uptown Funk ft. Bruno Mars
Just loving this whole funky biz!!! I actually saw the 'Uptown Funk' video for the first time today whilst sitting in the hairdressers. Funny when you think we've been playing it on Buffaloo Radio in the Chill Out Zone since its release last December! It's such a good video- dance, humour, tells a story- Michael Jackson would probably enjoy it! For a long video, it holds its own although over 37K people disagree- check the likes by comparison.
It's a shame there isn't more funky music around- James Brown cornered the market back in the day and Wild Cherry had a smash hit with 'Play that Funky Music'... till you die! There is definitely a great liking for funk as this track reached #1 for 7 weeks. Why do we love Funk? Obvious really, it gets you off your seat and dancing, which is the wonderful thing about great music- so here's to the funk!!
