kiss me on my ego!

What kind of soulless person doesn't love funk? The retarded lyrics, the great personality, the bass.
Lately I've been getting into Parliament Funkadelic, pretty much the lords of all things funky and cool. This is one of my favorites "Dr. Funkenstein". You might have heard the Red Hot Chilli Peppers cover, but really, download the original to get the full effect.

Whoa!

They say the bigger the headache, the bigger the pill, baby
Ahh..They call me the big pill
Dr Funkenstein
The disco fiend with the monster sound
The cool ghoul with the bump transplant
Hip bone connected to my thigh bone
My thigh bone connected to my leg bone
My leg bone connected to my ankle bone
I get so hung up on bones
Dr Funkenstein heah
Preoccupied and dedicated
To the preservation of the motion of hips

We love to funk you, Funkenstein
Your funk is the best (talk!)
Take my body, give it the mind
To funk with the rest (kiss me on my ego)
Hit me with the one and then
If you like, hit me again
We love to Funk-a-stein (ohhh, over!)

Dr. Funkenstein, King of the Funk, yeah!
Swift lippin', ego trippin' and body snatchin'
I'll blow your mind
Comin' to you directly from the Mothership
Pulling up the last leg (ah, ah, ah) Of the P.Funk
Well, alright Dr. Funkenstein, yeah
He'll funk with your mind (ooover)

We love to funk you, Funkenstein
Your funk is the best (let me hear it for me)
Take my body, give it the mind To funk with the rest (ha!)
Hit me with the one and then
If you like, hit me again
We love to Funk-a-stein (alright!)

Microbiologically speaking,
When I start churnin', burnin' and turnin'
I'll make your atoms move so fast
Expandin' your molecules
Causing a friction fire
Burnin' you on your neutron
Causing you to scream "Hit me in the proton, BABY!" (I don't know what I'm talking about)

Hit me with the one and then
If you like, hit me again
We love you, Funkenstein (oh yeah, let's do it one more time)
Ohhhh, over! Hoo-wee! (you're really out of sight)

I hope you all got your sunglass on out there
Ho! It's really gonna blow your mind
We love to funk you, Funkenstein
Your funk is the best (talk!)
Take my body, give it the mind
To funk with the rest (kiss me on my ego)
Hit me with the one and then
If you like, hit me again
We love to Funk-a-stein
We love to funk you, Funkenstein
Your funk is the best (over!)
Take my body, give it the mind
To funk with the rest
Hit me with the one and then
If you like, hit me again
We love to Funk-a-stein
Ain't nothing but a party, baby!
Swift lippin', and ego trippin' and body snatchin'

Dr. Funkenstein, you are really out of sight
The bigger the headache, the bigger the pill
They call me the big pill
Hit me with the one and then
If you like, hit me again
We love to, Funk-a-stein (Yeah, hit me one time, one time!)
(Hey man, you make me feel so bad)
We love to funk you, Funkenstein
Your funk is the best (it is so funky around here)
Take my body, give it the mind
To funk with the rest (I'm just funkin' and jumpin')
Hit me with the one and then (ooooover!)
If you like, hit me again
We love to Funk-a-stein (Yeah, we love you Dr. Funkenstein)
We love to funk you, Funkenstein
Your funk is the best
Take my body, give it the mind (yeah, take it!)
To funk with the rest (take it!)
Hit me with the one and then
If you like, hit me again

We love to Funk-a-stein (ooooover!)

hey, i thought that joke was funny!
but i think EVERYTHING is funny. my history teacher used the expression "close, but no cigar" the other day and i laughed for about half an hour.

gotta love some funkadelika.
and trust me, you don't want to be in my head (although thanks for the compliments!) it's a mess of glitter and confetti and attention deficit disorder up here. it's like a disco ravaged by a pack of drag queens, or antm contestants, which is really the same thing...
see what i mean?
stop talking, emma.

Noel Fielding said that funk was jazz's deformed cousin. I have not had much contact with funk so I can't say whether I agree or not. Dr Funkenstein sounds like a raver though, which I always enjoy.

Re: Prince sort of looked confused for a second, then he looked at Michael who said "err..sorry mate," and then Prince just sort of nodded/smouldered. I was personally hoping for some kind of dance-off but it wasn't happening.

I was lucky enough to see p-fun when I was in my early 20's and they had made a 1990's reunion...amazing fun show....and ridiculous outfits both on stage and in the audience.

do you have the mighty boosh in canada? if so have you seen the one with The Funk?
Basically the funk is a ball with teets and if you milk the funk and make a funkshake then you have the funk.
It even mentions parliament. god,if you dont have it over there you must invest in a dvd or something. it is tkoo good to miss. and if you do have it, i already bagsied noel fielding so i'm marrying him before anyone else (im very very protective)

funk + bass = excellence to extreme to describe.
I'm glad your back to your (somewhat) regular posting!!! We can be procrastinators together!!!

I forgot how much I miss your witty posts, and I'm glad I'm back from vacay!!!!

It's just so beautiful. Music that doesn't take itself too seriously but still wants ta make ya wanna get down and dance/groove.

Of course, it was Prince who took this whole style and perfected it with his own genius. Remember, "ACT YER AGE NOT YER SHOE SIZE!"
