Should Outa-Space be higher for being one of the first recorded funk clavinet performances?

It's a Led Zeppelin song in a funk song thread. Most ridiculous thing I've seen today.

:lol:

I'll admit it's pretty funky, but a significant funk song? Not a chance.

Agreed. There are WAY more significant funk songs that can't fit in a Top 200.

It could go either way. "Sex Machine" is such a quintessential funk song, a redefining funk song, and played a direct seminal role on hip-hop, disco, and modern R&B. The top two spots are locked by none other than Mr. Brown.
