Let the psychedelic funk rock illuminate your soul. Feel the positive high energy orb around the atmosphere of your being. Allow it to connect its roots within the stem of your brain and let it morph through your veins.
Encounter everthing that it is, can you feel the erotic sensation move your peripheral nerves. Get up and move, let it soothe your mood in twilight hours.
Reflect its grooves deep into the sun, where record breaking sounds transmit frequencies unbound.
In rythmn, in time bring forth your primitive requisite. Capture the keynotes ringing out like hues of the northern lights. Take hold, as unison collides.

Cool to read to this, as I am currently enjoying/studying this history of the band, "Grand Funk Railroad". They are one of those bands who's music got soooo deep inside of my subconscious, that I just took them for granted over the years and never thought to really research them out. Did you know that in 1971 they broke the attendance record at Shea Stadium previously set by the Beatles? And another little oddity: Led Zeppelin were afraid to follow their act so Peter Grant (their manager) had the power shut off, but the crowds nearly rioted and their show was restored. Gawd! Now I love me some Zep, but how neat that "America's Band" did that to those 2 English bands! I must say, I just straight up laughed my a$$ off upon learning these facts. WOOHOO! for Grand Funk Railroad \m/
And they're still not in the Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame! Ah! The Horrors!
They were soooo fine. Some band members had white-boy afros BEFORE the disco-era - I saw that on Youtube and was like wtf? BEFORE disco??? Kewl. And the lead singer, Mark Farner had a straight-hair indian theme going, since he is part Indian. I wonder if RHCP were inspired by them? Someone left a comment on Youtube saying "Rick Rubin must have been waaaaay into them when he was a kid." I'll just bet so too. Now I know why there are some *snickers* around America when people go gah gah (myself included) over Led Zeppelin. They were good on a different level and style, but there were other American bands that have been sorely overlooked due to all of the attention put forth towards the "Brittish Invasion." I say, bring back the REAL rock! It's been said that Grand Funk Railroad started the "Hard Rock" genre of rock music. I wonder....
And you've got to wonder if certain "other" songs were about them... like "Play that funky music white boy", and Bob Seger's "Gimme that ole time rock n' roll (today's music aint got the same soul), play me that ole time rock n' roll"
OMG, I don't mean to hi-jack your thread, but your first line:
"Let the psychedelic funk rock illuminate your soul."
