Funky covers. What are you playing?

Discussion in 'Recordings [BG]' started by mebusdriver, Sep 11, 2008.


  1. What are you guys playing for funk covers? I've been pitching some song ideas to a band I'm getting started but we can't seem to agree on much. Some just don't seem to be recognizable enough for them. So hit me with your favorite funk jams. :hyper:

    Superstition by Stevie Wonder
    Long Train Running by Doobie Brothers
    I Feel Good by James Brown
    Georgy Porgy by Toto
    Allt Ljus På Mig by Bo Kaspers Orkester (great Swedish band)

    All are not funk in it's most genuine form, but all are funky enough nevertheless. :)

    Unless you've just been born in the past couple of years I don't see how you couldn't recognize Low Rider.
     
  4. Here are some that seem to go over well with the crowd:

    Play That Funky Music - Wild Cherry
    Superstition - Stevie Wonder
    I Will Survive - Cake
    Tell Me Something Good - Rufus featuring Chaka Kahn... Stevie Wonder also happened to write it!

    And in a sad kind of way, a band I play in is planning on doing "I Kissed A Girl" by Kate Perry :meh:

    EDIT: Deacon_Blues beat me to it ha
