Music King Round 1: Funk

Player 1

I spent quite a bit of time researching for this selection and pretty much confirmed that this genre is well out of my taste. In the end I’ve settled on one we probably all know which is fused with a little bit of rock.



A la carte selection:
This next selection is much more about the performance than it is about the superb track. In the early 90’s we were introduced to most new tracks by the power of MTV, one of the most defining moments of that era has to be when Nirvana recorded their unplugged session.




Player 2


Gonna double down on some funk because decisions are hard!

First up, Atmostfear, great English funk band that i was lucky enough to catch a few months back in the 100 club on oxford st in London. Nice small old club, great night. My favorite from that night was likely this:



This is still tough, Im flipping a coin between a more well known belter, and fantastic less heard of track.... you get the belter

Tight enough one. Four very listenable tracks.

Player 1 nabs it will two iconic tunes. Player 2s were very enjoyable too, perhaps not just as timeless.

Good round for sure! I'm going for Player 2 as both picks were new to me and I enjoyed them as much as Player 1's, so a little bonus for introducing something new I am well aware that in other rounds I've voted for songs just because they are all-time classics, so am happily living with my voting contradictions, lol.

Player 2 for me, much the same reasoning as ionapaul

This round needed a lot more love. I guess it came late in the day which must have affected the voting volume.

Agree. Dont know who sent in their picks late but could put a 24 hour limit on it so the game runs smoothly and keeps people interested

This is true, but it's also up to the players to get their picks in early enough, and not à few days after everyone else. I just hope the loser isn't the one who got his picks in on time

Player 1s picks are obv classics but a little meh for this game unfort, for me. Want to hear something fresh.

Player 2 didn't set the world alight for me either but gets the nod for originality. Would like to hear more from him and see if something else hits the spot.

Purposely don't read any replies before I vote.
