I think theres some kind bug on youtube atm that makes the vids have no dislikes, sorry to burst your bubble

Chic are good for Funk songs

Chic - Good Times, Le Freak , Everybody Dance
Sister Sledge - He's The Greatest Dancer
Michael Jackson - Off The Wall (most of that album), Get On The Floor
Jamiroquai - Little L , You Give Me Something
Kool and The Gang - Get Down On It
Odyssey - Going Back To My Roots

Also Red Hot Chili Peppers are good for Rock/Funk
and the new Daft Punk song is funky

I like Funk

Although Chic is a bit on the Disco side of Funk.

Fight The Power - Isley Brothers
Papa was a Rolling Stone - The Temptations
Freddie's Dead - Curtis Mayfield
Any James Brown
Betty Davis - Anti Love Song (its hard to get more funky than that one)
Edwin Starr - War (What Is It Good For?)

My last band was a covers band. We did Play that Funky Music, Le Freak, Good Times plus a lot more like Ultra Nate, Pink, Morcheeba etc. But Play that Funky Music was my favourite.
