Monday Morning Aural Sex: 2020-02-03 (Don’t Funk With My Soul Edition)

Good fuckin’ morning, perverted perverts of Pervertistan! Emo-fuckin’-clew to another installment of your and my favorite podcast, Monday Morning Aural Sex! This week is a brand new type of edition which I’ve oh-so-fucking-cleverly dubbed, “Don’t Funk With My Soul…” Can ya fuckin’ guess what kind of music we’ll be hearing? Hmm?! Can ya?!?!

 

That’s right, experimental, avant-garde, post-country-polka-step-wave-core from Zimbabwe! Funk and soul, definitely, but keep your fuckin’ peeled ears peeled for that whether it happens or not, because wow. That’d be fuckin’ amazing if anything ever existed that could be described thusly.

 

Anyway, I’m sure a number of these tracks could be considered, “typical white guy,” tracks, but fuck you. I wanted to throw in some classics for this inaugural new type of edition, so there they are. I’ve got lots of classic funk and soul mixed in with more modern stuff, and I’ve got quite a number of Beatles covers in here too. It’s actually kind of crazy how many funk and/or soul versions of Beatles songs I found.

 

In case you might be wondering why I’m making this type of edition, well first of all, that’s racist. Second, I actually listen to funk and soul all the fucking time. Literally, almost every rideshare passenger I get, I put on Ray Charles artist radio on Spotify. It’s actually been the most complimented stuff I’ve ever played during my rides, so I’ve stuck with it for at least a year now. Considering how often I’ve heard a few of these jams, you would think I’d be sick to death of them by now and wouldn’t ever want to do a podcast around these genres, but you’d obviously be fuckin’ wrong about that shit. Wouldn’t you?

 

It’s pretty astonishing how much staying power these artists have. I think part of it is simply because I don’t play the music loud during my rides, so it doesn’t stick in my head as prominently as it would otherwise. Also, I’m sure some of these tracks seem outside of the funk & soul genres and more like R&B, but it’s all related. It’s got a rich history, and any of you more ardent music history buff perverts might enjoy delving into it if you can spare a fuck or a shit.

 

Any-fuckin’-way, let us yojne before our nipples escape and form an alliance against us and make us their slaves to keep on display in intergalactic zoos for no pay. That’s not the American way! They wouldn’t let us eat hay, or lay by the bay, or make things out of clay, it just may…
