ROCK Sex says, "Yeah, that's right, it's time to set the record straight!"
Time for some Funk tag today...
First the scandelous Funkadelic recorded this twisted ditty...
FUNKADELIC -"Loose Booty" (1972)
Then Sly Stone liked the title so much he made a new song, throwing in the immortal chorus "Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego" from his Gospel background.
SLY AND THE FAMILY STONE -"Loose Booty" (1974)
Then The Beastie Boys sampled Sly's chant of the biblical nobles "Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego" as the hook in their song...
BEASTIE BOYS -"Shadrach" (1989)
After refining their Funk chops by playing to Sly records, The Beasties twistedly did a cover of another Sly song in a Punk update...
SLY AND THE FAMILY STONE -"Time For Livin'" (1974)
BEASTIE BOYS -"Time For Livin'" (1992)
(note Adam's Sly Stone t-shirt at 0:10)
Get into some dancing, do what it's all about!"
