Review: Zapp – Zapp

0 0

The Zapp – Zapp album from 1979 is a classic funky funk album sprinkled with soul music. This album stood the test of time and still stands the test of time today. The whole album was heavily influenced by the sounds of funk and soul. There is no doubt about that. Zapp’s 1979 album included the funky smash singles More Bounce To The Ounce and Be Alright.

Zapp created an all time funk melody called More Bounce To The Ounce which is still heavily sampled to this day. Of course anyone can sample More Bounce To The Ounce by Zapp. The usage of samples from Zapp – More Bounce To The Ounce have increased over time as the years went by. What mostly stands on this song are the beats because the beats which Roger Troutman had produced are set to an upbeat pace.

Be Alright was the song which encouraged people to keep their heads up when times get rough. Although things may be tough, you’ve got to keep your head up. The song has a sad brooding downtempo sound which follow an upbeat funk pace and tempo.

Brand New Player (Brand New PPlayer) is a man who is a player that hits on the ladies and makes music that nobody can stand. This man is a brand new player who comes into the town of Hamilton, Ohio. He’s charming the badies and funkin’ up tha ladies minds. He is hitting on the ladies too. His message is clear He’s a player. A brand new player. This brand new player makes music that nobody can stand. You’ve never seen a cat do a show like this. He plays the funk with his guitar. He laid down a sound. You know that funky sound. He’s got some kinda magic touch.

[Verse 1]
Yeah a brand new player is coming to town
He’s charming the badies and funkin’ up tha ladies minds
His message is clear so lets get down
He throws up his hand and strikes up a [?]
Making my music that nobody can stand (music, music)
Making my music that nobody can stand (if you feel good…)

[Chorus]
Player, brand new player
Player, he’s a player
Player, brand new player

[Verse 2]
Never seen a cat do a show like this
Now listen honey, the way he [?] when he walks
Its all good you know you glance up, I know I should
Can’t stop the rhythm do nobody can do
Plays the funk with his guitar
Laid down a you know that funky sound
Oh why don’t you tell the children

[Chorus]
Player, brand new player
Player, he’s a player
Player, brand new player


[Verse 3]
Now making people happy is the aim of my game
If your feeling kinda blue how about you ease the pain
Now can’t helped it that your [?] are all due
If you honeys playing around ain’t a thing I can do
Sing a song, well, well anything of he’s got some kinda magic touch
When I play my guitar everybody’s gonna feel real loose
Bust a loose and get down!
Get down

[Chorus]
Player, brand new player
Player, he’s a player
Player, brand new player

Funky Bounce is a continuation of More Bounce To The Ounce and is More Bounce To The Ounce revisited. The song follows an uptempo pace to funky rhythms given that this is a funk song. However Funky Bounce wasn’t a hit like More Bounce To The Ounce was but still got has that funky soul sound and rhythm to it. Members of Zapp say this song has lots of rhythm. Watch it, baby, ’cause you’re funkin’ out of bounce! This is one of those tracks that will make you get up and want to dance.

Get up and let your body wiggle. Let that funky feeling go.You got to release it. You’ll bounce your way and I’ll bounce mine. And you’ll believe that everything will work out fine.

The lyrics are just as catchy and repetitive as they are on More Bounce To The Ounce. Below are some examples of the repetitive yet catchy lyrics.

Watch it, baby, ’cause you’re funkin’ out of bounce!
Watch it, baby, ’cause you’re funkin’ out of bounce!
