Song of the Week: “Funky Pants” by Oceanliners

by Douglas Cowie on 21 June 2019

Each Friday I pick a song–new, old, borrowed, blue–that’s been on my mind and in my ears, and write a short post about it.

This is “Funky Pants” by Oceanliners:

“Funky Pants” by Oceanliners, which I’d never heard before, crossed my path on Twitter the other day. The guitarist on this song is Jerome Smith, who also co-wrote it. Jerome Smith was the original guitarist in KC and the Sunshine Band. As ever when I hear a song with funk in the title, my mind is called back to one of my favorite essays about music ever, “I Thought I Heard Buddy Bolden Say” by Luc Sante.
