The funk and nothin' but the funk
Been funkin' to James Brown these last few days--got up on the good foot and in a cold sweat! So, I had to go for the big payback! Tell me some of your favorite maestros of funkadelic viberosity. Hit me! :PleasePleasePlease

So none of you think I am looney, "Get on the Good Foot", "Cold Sweat" and "The Payback" are famed James Brown funk/soul records. He used to say "hit me" at certain points in a tune to signal his horn players and the rest to start a groove.

Faves are: JB's Monorail and Make it Funky. By the way, I've got all the JB hits because we skate to them here in the Chi (hence my username). Big Smile

What's everyone favourite movie soundtracks? i.e. The songs within a movie.

Always enjoyed the "Lost Boys" tracks... a couple of gems in there (People are Strange, Echo and the Bunnymen) and the haunting "Cry Little Sister"

Cheesy, but I always loved the Top Gun soundtrack too - Danger Zone, Berlin etc...

Some people just don't know Shawn. No No James was a legend ahead of his time. L.T.D., Cameo, EWF, Slave, One Way and the Commodores. Some of the best (boy) bands ever.

I never saw that movie, but I heard it was good. I liked the soundtrack to The Big Chill when I was younger and I love the music (not really a soundtrack) to Cinema Paradiso. I also loved the first movie Diane Lane made with all that music from Vivaldi--A Little Romance (Lord Laurence Olivier was in it too).
