George Michael — Too Funky

George Michael — Too Funky

“Lyrically, the song is a basic, animalistic plea for sexual activity.

It features a clip from The GraduateAnne Bancroft‘s line of “Would you like me to seduce you? Is that what you’re trying to tell me?” is repeated during the final crescendo. The song then ends with a sample (“Will you stop playing with that radio of yours. I’m trying to get to sleep”) from an episode of the Tony Hancock Show called ‘The Radio Ham’. The line was spoken by actress Annie Leake.

Too Funky” is a song written and performed by English singer George Michael and released by Columbia Records in the United States and Epic Records elsewhere in 1992.

“Too Funky” was Michael’s final single for his recording contract with Sony Music before he started legal action to extricate himself from his contract. “Too Funky” had been initially earmarked for a follow-up to the album Listen Without Prejudice Vol. 2 but Michael shelved the idea, instead donating it, along with two other songs, to the project Red Hot + Dance, which raised money for AIDS awareness. Michael subsequently donated the royalties to the same cause. The song didn’t appear on any of Michael’s studio albums, although later it was included on his solo collection Ladies & Gentlemen: The Best of George Michael.

“Too Funky” reached number 4 in the UK Singles Chart in 1992 and became that year’s most played record in Europe.

In the U.S., the single debuted at number 84 on Billboard Hot 100, reaching number 10 – its peak position – by its fourth week. It sold over 500,000 copies, being certified Gold by the RIAA.

In Australia, it became the biggest gainer song ever in the top 50 of the Australian ARIA Singles Chart when it jumped from number 50 to number 8 (42 places), before reaching its peak position at number 3. “Too Funky” held this record until 2009, when “3” by Britney Spears rose from number 50 to number 7 (43 places).” — Wikipedia

 

 

“Too Funky” Lyrics

Hey, You’re Just Too Funky For Me
I gotta get inside of you
And i’ll show you heaven if you let me
Hey you just too funky for me
I gotta get inside, (i gotta get inside)
I gotta get inside of you (so when will that be)
I watch your fingers working overtime (overtime)
I got to thinking that they should be mine. Oh!

I’d like to think that sometime maybe
Tonight, if that’s all right, yeah!Hey, you”re just too funky for me
