Groooovy

Postby Shro » Thu Nov 17, 2011 12:18 am UTC

One rule. Songs posted in this thread has to make you want to dance, groove, move, shake it, wiggle it, back that thang up, rave, get freaky or whatever the case may be.


Goapele ft Los Rakas - Play
Toy Selectah ft Rey Pila- Villian Chillin (Don't Be Afraid)
Shakira- Rabiosa

Oumou Sangaré - Sounsoumba. I can't sit still while I listen to this. Random body parts will start to wiggle.

I Wish all songs were even remotely this groovy. You can also learn everything there is to know about mix engineering just by listening to it repeatedly. But mainly the groove!

Just about anything by Mondo Grosso.

I like lots of grooooovy music. Starting off slow, I recently bought this compilation of New Orleans funk, one of the standouts is this ridiculously funky song - The Meters - Just Kissed My Baby. It is impossible not to strut to this song.

If you want something a bit faster: Curtis Mayfield - Move On Up. Stone cold classic.

Do you like your beats hard? Oh My God by a tribe called quest will do the job.

Need a workout? Why don't we visit Trinidad for some Soca. We need to palance!

I thought this was going to be a different tune. I can't find it, but there's another one that I'm sure is by him that is big, big, big!

Oh, we're feeling the African vibe now? How 'bout some Fela Kuti - Zombie.

I prefer Superstition.

So many more but I don't want to hog the thread.

EDIT: Ok one more. One of the best disco songs ever.

If it's Swedish cutesy jazz you like, then I present: Koop - Summer Sun. Perfect song to drive in a convertible through an Italian village wearing a chiffon scarf.

Some of you might remember the singer, Yukimi Nagano, from Little Dragon.

Can't stop listening to this. I'm not familiar with Portico Quartet but have been a big fan of LV since day. So damn funky!

Some Teutonic funk: George Kranz - Din Daa Daa. You might recognise this song as it's been sampled a bazillion times.
