    I actually briefly played in a band that covered Unfunky UFO. I think there may be a video of us on youtube somewhere... haha. Great song!

    I'm too lazy to look through all 6 pages, but if these haven't been mentioned yet, shame on you all. :p
    Not just funky, but also jazz fusion. Stevie is a master:


    The Commodores - more than just those ballads:


    Ohio Players!

    My vote goes to "Superstition" by Stevie Wonder.

    I recently started a similar thread at TGP and I was struck by how many of the responses were humorless and didactic. You'd have thought I went to the Memphis BBQ Festival and announced that Texas BBQ was the best and all others were ****e.

    You guys are good! This one has been sampled about 800 times in hip hop, but very few have heard the original:
