I can't believe Prince constitutes funk. I think of him as pop. Very shitty and all too often sleazy pop.
Real funk is Curtis Mayfield, Parliament, Funkadelic, Isaac Hayes, James Brown, Ohio Players, and so on. But Prince fits the bill on occasion.

For a rap/hip-hop song, it's produced pretty well. At least for one in the popular sphere.

You could just about be forgiven for thinking Kanye is the sample in this track.

I'm listening right along with you and can hear the vain in your head swelling.

LMP, why oh why did you use the edited version of I Wonder? Jeez...

Because I only have the edited copy. Should've bought it without the Mom right there.

the I Wonder--->Punch Drunk transition is amusing if you know the history between Kanye and Jon Brion.

Good segue into the Jon Brion track, which in turn leads well into the Blur song.

I hope this Blur song is better than the really boring one in Lemonchick/Irishteen's list.

Tender goes on far too long, I will concede.

This version of To The End bothers me. I must hate French people.

He's been producing his work for years. Nothing particularly scandalous. That I know of.

I think it masks some of the trite lyrics of the original version. I love that one, too, but I think that this one is better.

The French is interesting. This is better than Tender. Beforehand, I only knew Blur for Song 2 and neither of these tracks are anything like that.

Song 2's an anomaly in their catalogue, but it's probably their most popular song. Weird.

Oh, the way you said it, I expected "Kanye West accidentally ran over Jon Brion's dog. And by accidentally, I mean repeatedly, and by dog, I mean son."

Blur's Parklife is amazing pop. Not terribly consistent, but worth a spin.
