"Literal definition of funk"?

Is there one? In his book, Funk: The Music, The People, And The Rhythm Of The One, author Rickey Vincent quotes Village Voice writer, Barry Walters: "Trying to put that thang called funk into words is like trying to write down your orgasm. Both thrive in that gap in time when words fall away, leaving nothing but sensation." And George Clinton has said "Funk is whatever it needs to be, at the time that it is."

Much of Prince's music, whether it be rock, pop, r&B, soul, new wave, etc... is FUNKY, because Prince himself was funky. Of course, a track can be funky without necessarily being "funk" music.

Funk defies definition.


AMEN!

I got two sides... and they're both friends.

So many good choices!

This one might be controversial, but here goes:

Xpand

I just went back to Xpectation earlier this year to give it a fresh listen. Xpand (the 7th track - coincidence? or fate?) is definitely up there with his funkiest numbers.

1+1+1 is 3 is his funkiest song. That badass bass, the weird filters on his voice, the other voice that sounds like it came straight from a Funkadelic record, the sound effects like a dancing theramin and synth that wriggles like crazy, it's the pinnacle of his funkiness

Lady Cab Driver.

It was the first Prince song I ever heard. I was in 6th grade. It transformed my ear.

Totally agree.

If I had to choose one, it would be Shockadelica. I would probably put DMSR as number 2.

Shockadelica is mostly a funk number or a bubblegum funk as I would call it, however, It has a little bit of a country or southern sound to it when this verse appears:

"Shockadelica is a feeling, the lonely cold
Sleepin' alone will bore ya and... and soon U'll grow old
N lust we will suffer but n love we will grow (Ooh)
Shockadelica is a feeling nobody should know (Shockadelica)
I'm talkin' about the lonely cold, mama, uh (Shockadelica)
Shockadelica"
