Among the P-Funk clique, funkier than this?

Flashlight is probably one of the most overrated though I still dig it.

Flashlight is a funky track but their are more funkier songs. I dont think Flashlight is overrated maybe played out but not overrated. Its a classic, great funk track and great to dance to. Its definitly one of my all time favorites but I wouldnt call it the best funk song of all time.

I actually think "(Not Just) Knee Deep" is the best funk song of all time.

Well it's up there, but Knee Deep wins the vote for me.

I'm not dissing "Flash Light" because it is an excellent funk song also, but I think "Knee Deep" reins supreme. I think everything about this song is sheer perfection, while I could personally take "Flashlight" or leave it. Maybe because it's so overplayed. I'm not sure why. However, it's one of the songs that grates my nerves when I hear it now.

Maybe that has to do with the fact that whenever funk is brought up in general discussion, this or one of James' songs or one of Sly's songs or "Superfreak" is often first mentioned. neutral

I can't tell you how much Dance To The Music makes me cringe because of that very reason.

Yeah I don't get the fade lmao

Nice subtle diss against James Brown. I was always wondering why George was yelling "talking about he mad?! Let's take it to the stage!" lol Now it makes sense because James said he "was mad" in "The Big Payback". Haha George and James dissing each other. lol
