Here are all of FunkyJ's jams.

Music Takes Me Up

Music Takes Me Up

by Mr Scruff

So, this will be my final jam. Nietzsche said "Without music, life is an error". Mr Scruff and Alice Russell ask you to imagine life without music in this song. I think I would die if music was denied to me in it's totality. Like the song says "the music takes me up". This Is My Jam is going away, but the music will stay for all to still listen to. I'd like to thank all the people at @thisismyjam for putting this cool little tech together, and allowing us to share such a cool, creative outlet together. I'd also like to say a big fuck you to the music industry for making something that defines our very humanity - that is the ability to share music with other people - difficult and dangerous unless we play by their frankly stupid and archaic rules.

Ohkey Dokey

Ohkey Dokey

by Incredible Bongo Band

The Incredible Bongo Band is incredible for the amount of people who have sampled them. This magnificent piece of dirty funk was sampled by Bently's Rhythm Ace who were once part of PWEI.

Lets Dance To Joy Division

Lets Dance To Joy Division

The Wombats really impressed me at Splendour. Their miserable lyrics clash with their melodic pop beautifully, and live they certainly are a lot of fun.
