Lay down that boogie and play that funky music 'til you die. (Hey,hey). Yeah, they were dancin' and singin' and movin' to the groovin'. And just when it hit me somebody turned around and shouted. Play that funky music white boy. Play that funky music right. Lay down that boogie and play that funky music 'til you die. 'Til you die, hey. Wow, 'til you die.

Oh, but now it's so much better (It's so much better) I'm funkin' out in every way But I'll never lose that feelin' (No I won't) Of how I learned my lesson that day. When they were dancin' and singin' and movin' to the groovin' And just when it hit me somebody turned around and shouted
Soul: Play That Funky Music is another decent if spotty compilation from the Madacy label. While it sticks to successful '70s soul singles, it's a fairly eclectic selection of songs within that realm, ranging from lush, laid-back ballads (like the Manhattans' "Kiss and Say Goodbye") to gritty funk (Earth, Wind & Fire's "Serpentine Fire"). The primary gripe with this disc is similar to the one with the other compilations in this series: at 12 songs, it's a bit too brief.
