    Nice list, so Prince is not only number one Guitarist of the world, he is 4 times in the top 100 Funk list, so must be Mr Funk of the world as well.

    I wouldn't call 'When Doves Cry' funk ... And 'Little Red Corvette' CERTAINLY isn't funk.
    They are splendid songs though Laughing

    The best funk song ever? I don't think I can give an answer to that ... over to Maceo!
