Today we have a few laughs about funky bands, songs and even genders that we commonly get mixed up. These confused pairs may have a similar sound, similar names, or both.
We all make mistakes, especially here on Funk Radio! Sometimes we will love a song and the band who performs it, until we realize we totally had the band wrong. Or the song. Or the song name is another band’s name. Or the woman singer is actually a man. Needess to say it can get a bit confusing, so we attempt to clear up some personal examples and discuss the reasoning behind them.
