Review: George Michael – Too Funky (Pop)

This review covers the pop track George Michael – Too Funky.

This track was released in 1992 as a single.

The track starts with a piano element. From there, the track gets a bassline, drum kit, chords, and a synth string. After another piano appearance, the vocals take the track into the first appearance of the main chorus. This is capped off with a synth melody in an instrumental section.

From there, the vocals then take the track into another round in the main chorus. The vocals then slip into the next verse. This is capped off with an instrumental section.

In the next section, the vocals take the track into the next verse. Then, the vocals take the track into the next round in the main chorus with some subtle backup vocals. A voice sample makes a brief appearance.

From there, there is sort of a next verse. A pitch-bent version of the voice sample makes a return. Some more vocals appear with use of the voice sample. After that, there is another voice sample followed by a vinyl scratch.

It’s quite difficult yo find any upsides to the track. The bassline is decent, but that is about all I can really find with this one.

The lyrics are a bit all over the map because it blends verses and main chorus sections so much. To make matters worse, the lyrics are hard to understand because of the way the vocals are.

Overall, the bassline is probably the only upshot to this track. Once you get past that, it’s hard to find anything good hear. The vocals make the lyrics hard to understand and it is difficult to really follow once you do understand the lyrics in the first place. So, unfortunately, this is a bit of a flop for me.

Score
4.5/10
