Why do some of us feel compelled to do a Top-10 music list at the end of each year? There are several answers I suppose… for me, it’s primarily to let those closest to me, ones that share my musical taste, know what the FUNK-iest music I’ve heard, is.

I promise to do entry’s earlier for the years to come. There was so much good FUNKIN’ music out in 2008, I actually had to do a Top-20.
