    Well I think the reason people haven't replied is because this same question has been asked several times recently here and they don't feel like typing in the same thing, yet again.

    If you are genuinely interested in getting some titles of funk tunes, I would suggest using the search facility - limit your search to "Recordings" - only search for the titles of threads and use the keyword "funk" - that should get you lots of suggestions.
