Play That Funky Music

The sing along chorus is the key to the masses and no one expresses their faith in this rule like Wild Cherry in Play That Funky Music (White Boy). Like many of us who thought rock and roll was the easiest type of pop music, they discovered that they were dead wrong. Funk is super easy, similar, and at the time more lucrative. In this video, you'll notice the coolest horn players ever, the weirdest outfits white people ever wore, the corniest looking drummer of all time, and a key change or two. Not only does the key change on the choruses and at the end it goes up on the outro (twice on the recorded version, once here). Big ballin.
