Today’s Funkin’ Friday joint is a funk rock joint released way back in 1984 by The Time, a group put together by a guy named Prince. While most would say the group never hit Prince’s level of success, The Time was a popular band that produced several hits.
To put it simply, The Bird is a fun song. The dance that goes along is easy to do and lead singer Morris Day is as entertaining as hell. It is an upbeat party song that was on the group’s third album Ice Cream Castle. It was also featured in the movie Purple Rain.
The Bird is a good example of what happens you have let a real band play real instruments. You get a hit.
And just so you know, this song ain’t for everybody, just the sexy people.
