Morning Song – What Is Success

October 28, 2015

People who complain about funk because “it’s all about the beat” and “songs don’t have meaningful lyrics like they used to” and “get off my lawn you rotten kids” and…, well, you get the point.

Maybe what they really mean is something like “Allen Toussaint creates such funky grooves that I completely missed his profound meditations of the meaning of life and the compromises one faces” in songs like “What Is Success”.  (Either that, or “Bonnie Raitt’s slide guitar work is so achingly, teasingly blues-filled and funky that I plumb lost my mind“.  Listen for yourself and see if you can figure it out.)
