Funk Friday: Bootsy Collins- I'd Rather be with You
Hello everyone, did you miss me for one day? I'm quite for sure you guys did, but it's OK I'm here now (I kid, I kid)! March is here already, and if you did not achieve your goals during the previous month, don't be afraid to finish them this month (positive words from Soul You Know)!
As I digress, I woke up and had funk music on my mind, and I had to think of some good funk songs that I grew up listening to! With much thought, I decided to pick Bootsy Collins song I'd Rather be with You, for"Funk Friday"! Most remember this song on the movie Baby Boy. During a scene in the movie Baby Boy, Snoop Lion was smoking and grooving to the Bootsy Collin's hit!
Bootsy Collins is a funk pioneer who funk music has spanned for decades! Boosty started off playing bass guitar for James Brown in the 60's and became part of the Parliament-Funkadelic in the 70's!
Check out this song from Bootsy's first album with his band Bootsy's Rubber Band, Stretchin' Out in Bootsy's Rubber Band (circa 1976) and leave your comments below!
