On Thursday, August 25, Atomic Funk Project will pay tribute to two of the greatest musical geniuses to walk the earth, Prince and Michael Jackson. We’ve compiled our favorite Prince and MJ tunes below to help prepare you for Brooklyn’s best funk party.
Michael Jackson – “Thriller”
The red jacket, that bass line, and the most progressive production for a music video to date.
Prince – “Purple Rain” Live at the Superbowl Halftime Show, 2007
One of the greatest Superbowl halftime shows, maybe even one of the the greatest live performances of all time. Keep in mind its pouring rain as he delivers this legendary performance.
Michael Jackson – “Bad”
Michael put the “Bad” in “badass” with this classic 80’s jam.
Prince – “The Everlasting Now” Live on The Tonight Show, 2002
Prince turned The Tonight Show into a sweaty, funky mess with help from an all-star band including Maceo Parker.
Michael Jackson – “Smooth Criminal” Live in Munich, 1997
Never one to shy away from an outstanding performance, the production of this show in Germany matches the King of Pop’s energy.
Prince – “Blues In C (If I Had A Harem)” Live in Dortmund, GE, 1988
“The Purple One” shows off his penchant for the blues all the while keeping it smooth and very, very sexy.
