David Bradley – Uncovered

Volume II of my collection of original songs – album entitled “Uncovered Again” – is gradually coming together:

So far it ncludes my tribute to Nile Rodgers – (Dancing with the famous) Funktastic!!! My tribute to Voyager 1 and the late Carl Sagan – Pale Blue Dot. And various songs about the usual subjects: war, freedom, love, hate, poverty, loss, mourning, death, oh, and alcoholism. I’m in the middle of writing another song about poverty with the working title of “The hand-me-down parade”…cheery stuff, y’all.

But, if you don’t want the downer of all that misery…albeit upbeat, rocking misery, I suggest you just put Funktastic!!! on auto-repeat and get dancing ;-)

(Vol I – David Bradley Uncovered – is here if you want more up-tempo misery)

Funktastic!!!

Beatboxing, Nile-ism, Geddy-style bass slapping and hyper-autotuned vocals from @sciencebase Something to get pre-loaded to on a Saturday night.* Come on!

Funktastic!!!

It’s the time of your life, but you’re feelin’ down
Don’t let them say what comes around comes around

Step to your feet, hit the floor with the heat
Funk it up so hard with the bass of the beat

You’re in denial, don’t wanna lose face
Don’t let them tell you what you do’s a disgrace

There’ll be no defeat, hit the floor with the beat
Funk it up hard, in the chase for the heat

Come on

Running with the famous…funktastic
Believe in your words…funktastic

Wonder what you had, you’ve got to stand tall
Facing up to facts, they can’t make you feel small

Step up to the mark, got to hit it full on
There’s no place to run, the night is still young

Come on

Running with the famous…funktastic
Believe in your words…funktastic

Dancing with the famous…funktastic
Dancing with the famous…funktastic
Dancing with the famous…funktastic
