What are some good (popular) funk songs I could learn. I recently messed around with some funky chords and whatnot and I like it.

All I know is Funkytown - Lipps Inc.
All I can tell you to do is to check out the following bands:

The Meters ((A must for funk-jams))
Graham Central Station.
James Brown.

& basically any///all of the P-Funk spin offs, George Clinton and Bootsy Collins are in most of these bands.

You lay me down as I go to the store
Sorrow ate me, I'm not me anymore
Play these heavens one more time
I'm not yours and I'm not mine

When you hear music after it's over, it's gone in the air.
You can never capture it again.

Yeah - George Clinton and Bootsy Collins are probably the two funkiest people who've ever lived. Anything from Parliament and Funkadellic would be worth checking out.

2 albums I recommend are Mothership Connection and Funkentelechy Vs. The Placebo Syndrome. Both are by Parliament. They're amazing albums.

I get to see George Clinton and P-Funk on Friday
