Músicas de Funk

O funk como estilo musical surgiu, mais precisamente, nos EUA, quando músicos afro-americanos misturaram ritmos como soul, jazz e rhythm and blues. A seguir, uma seleção com 20 obras-primas do gênero.

Sex Machine, de James Brown – Músicas de Funk

A palavra funk já era usada para designar algumas canções desde o ano de 1907, mas, só veio a ser considerado estilo musical quando o “Papa do Soul” James Brown veio com as suas incríveis inovações. Uma das músicas que melhor definem o cantor é “Sex Machine”, sem dúvida.

Funk Brother Soul, de Gerson King Combo – Músicas de Funk

Iniciando a carreira em 1963, fazendo dublagem no programa “Hoje é Dia de Rock”, o carismático Gerson King Combo se tornou cult ao longo dos anos, e, vez ou outra, é “redescoberto” como um grande nome da nossa música. Um de seus melhores momentos é “Funk Brother Soul”.

Letra de Funk Brother Soul, de Gerson King Combo

Não pretendo ser nunca pretensioso
Mas eu vou me explicar
Numa fôrma fui feito com carinho e com jeito
Que não sei é onde foi parar
Se um dia fui rei, se reinei não sei
Só sei que é pura verdade
Quem nasceu pra rei, nunca pra ninguém
Perde a majestade

Então eu vou lhe mostrar
Como se dança funk brother soul

Se o ritmo é bom sem distinção
Eu sei que vou gostar
Se amante eu sou do ritmo soul
Do funk eu não vou separar
Se você curte o som, e acha que é bom
Talvez eu possa gostar
Não me imponha seu som, pois se ele for bom
Com ele não abro mão

Então eu vou lhe mostrar…

Letra de Shining Star, de Earth, Wind & Fire

When you wish upon a star
Your dreams will take you very far
But when you wish upon a dream
Life ain’t always what it seems
What’d you see on a night so clear
In the sky so very dear
You’re a shining star
No matter who you are
Shining bright to see
What you could truly be (what you could truly be)
Shining star come in to view
Shine its watchful light on you
Give you strength to carry on
Make your body big and strong
Born a man child of the sun
Saw my work had just begun
Found I had to stand alone
Bless it now I’ve got my own
So, if you find yourself in need
Why don’t you listen to these words of heed
Be a giant grain of sand
Words of wisdom, yes I can
You’re a shining star
No matter who you are
Shining bright to see
What you could truly be
You’re a shining star
No matter who you are
Shining bright to see
What you could truly be
You’re a shining star
No matter who you are
Shining bright to see
What you could truly be
Shinning star for you to see
What your life can truly be
Shinning star for you to see
What your life can truly be
Shinning star for you to see
What your life can truly be

Letra de Superstition, de Stevie Wonder

Very superstitious, writings on the wall
Very superstitious, ladders bout’ to fall
Thirteen month old baby, broke the lookin’ glass
Seven years of bad luck, the good things in your past
When you believe in things that you don’t understand
Then you suffer
Superstition ain’t the way
Very superstitious, wash your face and hands
Rid me of the problems, do all that you can
Keep me in a daydream, keep me goin’ strong
You don’t want to save me, sad is my song
When you believe in things you don’t understand
Then you suffer
Superstition ain’t the way, yeh, yeh
Very superstitious, nothin’ more to say
Very superstitious, the devil’s on his way
Thirteen month old baby, broke the lookin’ glass
Seven years of bad luck, good things in your past
When you believe in things that you don’t understand
Then you suffer
Superstition ain’t the way, no, no, no

People movin’ out, people movin’ in.
Why, because of the color of their skin.
Run, run, run, but you sho’ can’t hide
An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.
Vote for me and I’ll set you free
Rap on, brother, rap on.
Well, the only person talkin’ ‘bout love thy brother is the preacher
And it seems nobody’s interested in learning but the teacher
Segregation, determination, demonstration, integration, aggravation,
humiliation, obligation to our nation
Ball Of Confusion that’s what the world is today (yeah, yeah)
The sale of pills is at an all time high
young folks walkin’ ‘round with their heads in the sky
Cities aflame in the summer time, and oh the beat goes on
Eve of destruction, tax deduction,
City inspectors, bill collectors,
Evolution, revolution, gun control, the sound of soul,
Shootin’ rockets to the moon, kids growin’ up too soon
Politicians say more taxes will solve ev’rything, and the band played on.
Round and round and around we go, where the world’s headed nobody knows.
Great googa mooga, can’t you hear me talkin’ to you, just a
Ball of Confusion that’s what the world is today. (yeah, yeah)
Fear in the air, tension ev’rywhere
Unemployment rising fast, the Beatle’s new record’s a gas,
and the only safe place to live is on an Indian reservation,
and the band played on
Eve of destruction, tax deduction,
City inspectors, bill collectors, mod clothes in demand,
population out of hand, suicide too many bills, hippies movin’ to the hills
People all over the world are shouting end the war and the band played on.
Round and round and around we go, where the world’s headed nobody knows.
Great googa mooga, can’t you hear me talkin’ to you, just a
Ball of Confusion that’s what the world is today
Let me hear you, let me hear you, let me hear you

Oh-oh-oh-oh…

Everybody was Kung Fu fighting
Those kids were fast as lightning
In fact it was a little bit fright’ning
But they fought with expert timing

There was funky China men from funky Chinatown
They were trapping when up, they were trapping when
down
It’s an ancient Chinese art,
and everybody knew their part
For my friend, ain’t you a stiff,
then I’m kickin’ from the hip

Everybody was Kung Fu fighting
Those kids were fast as lightning
In fact it was a little bit fright’ning
But they fought with expert timing

There was funky Billie Jim and little Sammy John
He said, here comes the big boss, let’s get it on
We took the bow and made a stand,
started swaying with the hand
A sudden motion made me stiff,
now we’re into a brand new trip

Everybody was Kung Fu fighting
Those kids were fast as lightning
In fact it was a little bit fright’ning
But they did it with expert timing

Oh-oh-oh-oh…

Everybody was Kung Fu fighting
those kids were fast as lightning
In fact it was a little bit fright’ning
make sure you have expert timing

Kung Fu fighting
had to be fast as lightning…

While you’re moving, rock steady
Rock steady, baby
Let’s call this song exactly what it is (what it is, what it is, what it is)
It’s a funky and lowdown feeling (what it is)
In the hips from left to right (what it is)
What it is I might be doin’ (what it is)
This funky dance all night
(Let me hear ya gotta feeling in the air)
(Gotta a feeling, an ain’t got a care)
(What fun to take this ride, rock steady will only slide)
Rock steady, rock steady baby
Rock steady, rock steady baby
Jump and move your hips with a feeling from side to side
Sit yourself down in your car and take a ride
While you’re moving, rock steady
Rock steady
Let’s call this song exactly what it is (what it is, what it is, what it is)
It’s a funky and lowdown feeling (what it is)
In the hips from left to right (what it is)
What it is I might be doin’ (what it is)
This funky dance all night
(Let me hear ya gotta feeling in the air)
(Gotta a feeling, an ain’t got a care)
(What fun to take this ride, rock steady will only slide)
Rock steady baby
Rock steady, woo
Rock steady
Rock steady, rock steady (what it is)
It’s a funky and lowdown feeling (what it is)
In the hips from left to right (what it is)
What it is is I might be doin’
This funky dance all night
(Let me hear ya gotta feeling in the air)
(Gotta a feeling, an ain’t got a care)
(What fun to take this ride, rock steady will only slide)
Rock steady, steady baby, rock, rock steady, baby
Baby (what it is), baby, baby (what it is) baby

Letra de Mandamentos Black, de Gerson King Combo

Brother!!!
Assuma sua mente,brother!
E chegue a uma poderosa conclusão de que os blacks não
Querem ofender a ninguém, brother!
O que nós queremos é dançar! dançar,dançar e curtir
Muito som.
Não sei se estou me fazendo entender.
O certo,é seguir os mandamentos blacks,que são,baby:
Dançar,como dança um black!
Amar,como ama um black!
Andar,como anda um black!
Usar, sempre o cumprimento black!
Falar,como fala um black!

E eu te amo,brother!!

Viver,sempre na onda black!
Ter,orgulho de ser black!
Curtir o amor de outro black!
Saber,saber que a cor branca,brother é a cor da
Bandeira da paz, da pureza e esses são os pontos de
Partida para toda a coisa boa,brother!
Divina razão pela qual amo vc tbm, brother!
Eu te amo brother!!

E eu te amo brother!!!

Letra de Só Love, de Claudinho e Buchecha

Só love, só love
Só love, só love
Só love, só love
Só love, só love…

Quero, de novo com você
Me atracar com gosto
Corpo, alma e coração
Venero, demais o meu prazer
Controlo o calendário
Sem utilizar as mãos…

Amor vou esperar
Prá ter o seu prazer
Seu corpo
É mais quente que o sol
Eu vivo a sonhar
Pensando em você
Delírios de jogar futebol

Só love, só love
Só love, só love
Só love, só love
Só love, só Love…

Quero, de novo com você
Me atracar com gosto
Corpo, alma e coração
Venero, demais o meu prazer
Controlo o calendário
Sem utilizar as mãos…

Amor vou esperar
Prá ter o seu prazer
Seu corpo
É mais quente que o sol
Eu vivo a sonhar
Pensando em você
Delírios de jogar futebol

Só love, só love
Só love, só love
Só love, só love
Só love, só love…

E mesmo que eu
Arriscasse alguém
Não seria tão bom
Quanto é
Eu não vou confiar
Em ninguém
E nem vou me envolver
Com qualquer
Prá despir toda essa, razão
E a emoção, transparecer
Deixarei que os momentos, se vão
Prá amar tem que ser
Com você…

Só love, só love
Só love, só love
Só love, só love
Só love, só love…

Rap da Felicidade (Eu só quero é ser feliz), de Cidinho & Doca – Músicas de Funk

Em 1994, muito antes da explosão midiática do funk carioca, a dupla Cidinho & Doca emplacou um dos maiores hits da música brasileira recente: “Rap da Felicidade (Eu só quero é ser feliz)”.

Músicas de Funk 21

Letra de Rap da Felicidade (Eu só quero é ser feliz), de Cidinho & Doca

Eu só quero é ser feliz
Andar tranquilamente na favela onde eu nasci, é
E poder me orgulhar
E ter a consciência que o pobre tem seu lugar
Fé em Deus, DJ

Eu só quero é ser feliz
Andar tranquilamente na favela onde eu nasci, é
E poder me orgulhar
E ter a consciência que o pobre tem seu lugar
Mas eu só quero é ser feliz, feliz, feliz, feliz, feliz
Onde eu nasci, han
E poder me orgulhar
E ter a consciência que o pobre tem seu lugar

Minha cara autoridade, eu já não sei o que fazer
Com tanta violência eu sinto medo de viver
Pois moro na favela e sou muito desrespeitado
A tristeza e alegria aqui caminham lado a lado
Eu faço uma oração para uma santa protetora
Mas sou interrompido à tiros de metralhadora
Enquanto os ricos moram numa casa grande e bela
O pobre é humilhado, esculachado na favela
Já não aguento mais essa onda de violência
Só peço a autoridade um pouco mais de competência

Eu só quero é ser feliz
Andar tranquilamente na favela onde eu nasci, han
E poder me orgulhar
E ter a consciência que o pobre tem seu lugar
Mas eu só quero é ser feliz, feliz, feliz, feliz, feliz
Onde eu nasci, é
E poder me orgulhar
E ter a consciência que o pobre tem seu lugar

Diversão hoje em dia não podemos nem pensar
Pois até lá nos bailes, eles vem nos humilhar
Fica lá na praça que era tudo tão normal
Agora virou moda a violência no local
Pessoas inocentes que não tem nada a ver
Estão perdendo hoje o seu direito de viver
Nunca vi cartão postal que se destaque uma favela
Só vejo paisagem muito linda e muito bela
Quem vai pro exterior da favela sente saudade
O gringo vem aqui e não conhece a realidade
Vai pra zona sul pra conhecer água de côco
E o pobre na favela vive passando sufoco
Trocaram a presidência, uma nova esperança
Sofri na tempestade, agora eu quero abonança
O povo tem a força, precisa descobrir
Se eles lá não fazem nada, faremos tudo daqui

Eu só quero é ser feliz
Andar tranquilamente na favela onde eu nasci, é
E poder me orgulhar
E ter a consciência que o pobre tem seu lugar, eu
Eu só quero é ser feliz, feliz, feliz, feliz, feliz
Onde eu nasci, han
E poder me orgulhar, é
O pobre tem o seu lugar

Diversão hoje em dia, nem pensar
Pois até lá nos bailes, eles vem nos humilhar
Fica lá na praça que era tudo tão normal
Agora virou moda a violência no local
Pessoas inocentes que não tem nada a ver
Estão perdendo hoje o seu direito de viver
Nunca vi cartão postal que se destaque uma favela
Só vejo paisagem muito linda e muito bela
Quem vai pro exterior da favela sente saudade
O gringo vem aqui e não conhece a realidade
Vai pra zona sul pra conhecer água de côco
E o pobre na favela, passando sufoco
Trocada a presidência, uma nova esperança
Sofri na tempestade, agora eu quero abonança
O povo tem a força, só precisa descobrir
Se eles lá não fazem nada, faremos tudo daqui

Eu só quero é ser feliz
Andar tranquilamente na favela onde eu nasci, é
E poder me orgulhar
E ter a consciência que o pobre tem seu lugar, é
Eu só quero é ser feliz, feliz, feliz, feliz, feliz
Onde eu nasci, han
E poder me orgulhar
E ter a consciência que o pobre tem seu lugar
E poder me orgulhar
E ter a consciência que o pobre tem seu lugar

Vamos balançar esse esqueleto!

O funk continua sendo uma das expressões artísticas mais emancipatórias das chamadas periferias, e continua a fazer sucesso, mesmo sob o risco de criminalização do estilo. O balanço, no entanto, resiste e continua.
