Stacey Lattisaw - Jump to the Beat

Catchy chorus, groovy bass-line and a cowbell within the opening four bars, what more could you possibly need to put a smile on your face and a wiggle in your hips? This is a criminally underrated tune.

Gwen McCrae - All This Love I'm Giving

Speaking of criminally underrated, Gwen McCrae has one of the best voices of her generation: pitch perfect and gravelly in all the right places. This funky number is one of a kind, and your life is better if this tune is in it!

Evelyn 'Champagne' King - I’m In Love

With a name like hers, Evelyn 'Champagne' King could have ended up a soul singer or a boxer. Fortunately for us Evelyn settled for a career as a singer and has released some iconic tunes such as ’Shame’ and ‘Love Come Down’, but it's the synths and the lyrics in this tune that knock me out every time!

First Choice - Love Having You Around

It’s so funky you have to screw up your face to listen to it. Need I say more?

Chaka Khan - I Feel for You

Written by Prince, performed by Chaka Khan with Stevie Wonder on harmonica. The gods of funk and soul really smashed it out of the park with this one - an absolute party starter.

Ooosh! What a selection! Check out this handy little playlist and get your weekend off to a fresh and funky start!
