New Years Eve FUN FUN FUNK

Well here we are.   It officially that last day of 2022.   So glad to see the year gone and ready for the new year.  New Years is always about celebration.   So what better way to celebrate than to funk it up.  
I decided to post 7 videos.   Why seven?   Well it's always been one of my favorite numbers aaaaannnnndddd 2+0+2+3=7.  LOL 

Come with me to Earth Wind & Fire's BOOGIE WONDERLAND. 
The funk master himself, Bootsy Collins had hit after hit.   Here he is joined by the Cleveland Youth Orchestra to a surprizing wound up version of WIND ME UP.    Wish I'd seen this show.   🙂
Known more as a disco band Chic could also get downright funky.    New Years Eve is about celebrating GOOD TIMES and Chic are here to make it happen.   Enjoy.
George Clinton's Parliament Funkadelic had so many great hits.     There here on New Years Eve to BRING THE FUNK.  Get ready to shake it loose. 
The great Gap Band invites you to climb aboard the PARTY TRAIN.    
The unbeatable Rick James.   Playing HARD TO GET keeps the party moving. 
Finally.   I grew up with a TV show called Soul Train - you might say that show taught me how to dance.   Enjoy Wild Cherry's PLAY THAT FUNKY MUSIC. 
Hope you all enjoyed the party.   See you Next Year!!!!!   HAPPY NEW YEARS!!!!!

I've posted this song before.   Mon DĂ©sir by Michael Pritzl and his band The Violet Burning from their 2012 album PENTIMENTO II.   I still find it extremely moving.   As we transition from the Christmas season into the new year we think about hopes and desires for the new year.   All my hopes are for you ________.

the radio plays on New Year's Day
and all I want is you..
through the snow and the rain
on New Year's Day
all I want is you

there's a driving rain pouring down on me
through a broken life you have carried me
when there are no lights you are all I see
all I want is you

all the promises made on New Year's Day
all I want is you
and the meteors came on New Year's Day
all I want is you

there's a driving rain pouring down on me
through a broken life you have carried me
when there are no lights you are all I see
all I want is you

we came in there, through Chicago
beneath a blinding light
you came all the way from heaven
through the sorrow and the night
(I was waiting for your gift there, in the palaces of song
I knelt down to forgiveness for all I had done wrong)

and the radio plays on New Year's Day
but all I want is you

there's a driving rain pouring down on me
through a broken life you have carried me
when there are no lights you are all I see
all I want is you
