MISSING IT AND AN ACTUAL CAPTURE – Missing the FUNKIEST Moment Revisited

MISSING IT AND AN ACTUAL CAPTURE – Missing the FUNKIEST Moment Revisited

Last year I wrote an item titled “Missing the Funkiest Moment.”  It was about how so many people nowadays that go to live performances, and truly miss the essence of the show they’re attending.  You Are At The Show, you should enjoy it, not spend time trying to record it to watch later.  I feel confident in my knowledge of this, as I have been so fortunate to see so many shows, since I was a teen.

Her 2006 release, “Back to Black,” put her on the proverbial map and earned her six Grammy nominations that resulted in five wins.

The Funkiest Music of 2008

The Funkiest Music of 2008

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.  Beyond that, I hope to reach others who are seeking fresh, motivating, head-boppin’, gut moving, foot tappin’, eye opening, FUNKALICIOUS flavored, groovy, neck bendin’ sounds… they may not have encountered yet.
