1. a 1980 number one hit for the R&B/funk/post-discogroup Lipps,Inc. (pronounced "lip synch" - yes, that's how U say it). They were basically a one hit wonder.
2. a Top 10 hit in 1987 for the Australian New Wave group Pseudo Echo. It has a harder-edged sound than the original seven years before. A genuine butt kicker. Pseudo Echo also scored a hit with their own "Living in a Dream" earlier in 1987.
3. because of their playing the Pseudo Echo hit, San Francisco radio stations gave the nickname "Funky Town" to their city itself.
1. ... won't you take me to
2. "Funky Town" was riding high on the charts in the summer of 1987.
Carl: Let's go to Funky Town and see the Chinese New Year parade in Chinatown! Then we can eat some Peking duck at the Golden Dragon restaurant.
