“Mary Jane”-Rick James


I thought the first time I heard this was a few weeks ago in Michael’s car. I felt the feeling of the funk inside of me. It’s a wonderful thing. I had to Shazam to find the name of the song because most of my Rick James knowledge comes from Charlie Murphy.

But I had heard this jam before, in Friday.

I don’t pretend to understand the funk. I’ll only go as far as my personal feelings. I know the funk came from space a long time ago. Beyond that, all I know is my head nods and I need more.

One name, many jams. . .another Mary Jane jam worth mentioning is Tom Petty’s “Last Dance With Mary Jane.”
