James Brown - The Payback

Man, no one puts on a show like James Brown. This song is a good example of the influence funk music had on other genres; only a few years later, breakbeat DJs would transform songs by James Brown, George Clinton and other funk artists into early hip-hop.

Stevie Wonder - You Are The Sunshine Of My Life

A brilliant 1974 performance at the Rainbow Theatre. "You Are The Sunshine Of My Life" would become Wonder's third number one single and won him a Grammy for Best Pop Male Vocal Performance.

Sugarhill Gang - Apache

Legendary cover of Apache by the Sugarhill Gang. This video cuts out and starts over, does anyone have a better copy?
