Ooh have you heard the latest feel good song? Know how “Happy” have been everywhere and nobody could resist dancing along for the last twelve months? “Uptown Funk” is the replacement get up and groove song for the end of the year.
“Uptown Funk” is the lead single from Mark Ronson‘s upcoming Uptown Special album, due out in 2015. Ronson discussed that he wanted to evoke the feeling of when people still had to go out to fully live up the night to properly enjoy music. “Uptown Funk” features a cameo collaboration with crooner Bruno Mars. The duo have a long string of hit making qualities together and this song follows the magic formula.
The beat is infectious and quality. It’s a call to the classic good old days of funk. With slapping elastic bass, you will slowly feel your limbs moving with no control of your own. “Uptown Funk” is a song full of both amazing vocals and production.
This retro tune is set to turn the clocks back musically to the 70s. The video is just as much of a fun throwback.
Are you enjoying the funk comeback of late?
P.S. – If you’re digging the funk resurgence out The Tune Up on Chromeo, another band that uses funk influences in their music.
Until next time,
