The opening of Sex Machine is one of the best openings to any song ever.

Song #2 is "I Got You (I Feel Good)" from 1965. It was on 29 ballots and had a total of 1714 points in the voting. But the number one song was on 32 ballots and had 1995 points. This song was number one on the Billboard R&B chart for 6 weeks, and was the highest charting single that JB ever had on the Billboard Pop chart, reaching number 3. Before the hit version on King James released an earlier take on the song on Smash in 1964. He lip synched that version in the movie "Ski Party."


Actually, an even earlier version of the song was done as "I Found You" by Yvonne Fair in 1962. Produced by James Brown and recorded with his band.


Brown's screams at the beginning and end of the song have been sampled a number of times for hip hop and dance songs. In 2000, "I Got You (I Feel Good)" reached number 21 on VH1's 100 Greatest Songs in Rock and Roll and number 75 on VH1's 100 Greatest Rock and Roll Dance Songs, one of only seven songs to make both lists. In 2004, "I Got You (I Feel Good)" was ranked number 78 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest songs of all time.

And we have arrived at the number one song.

Our number one James Brown song is "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag" from 1965. The single was number one on the Billboard R&B chart for 8 weeks. It was also JB's first top 10 Pop chart hit, reaching #8 on the Billboard Hot 100. It was his first chart hit in the UK, getting to #25. It also won Brown his first Grammy Award, for Best Rhythm & Blues Recording. It was also the title track to an album.

Consolidating the rhythmic innovations of earlier James Brown recordings such as "I've Got Money" and "Out of Sight", "Papa's Got a Brand New Bag" is considered seminal in the emergence of funk music as a distinct style. As Brown sings the praises of an old man brave enough to get out on the dance floor of a nightclub ("brand new bag" meaning new interest, taste, or way of doing something), his band provides a horn-heavy backdrop with a prominent rhythm and an electric guitar riff for a hook. Both singer and musicians place overwhelming emphasis on the first beat of each measure ("on the One"). The song is Brown's first recording to feature Jimmy Nolen on guitar.

The taped recording of "Papa's Got a Brand New Bag" was edited and sped up for its single release, increasing the tempo and raising the pitch by a half step. In 1991 the recording was released in unedited form at its original speed on the box set Star Time. The track includes lead-in studio chatter, with Brown throatily (and presciently) shouting "This is a hit!" just before the drum and horn intro.

In 2004, "Papa's Got a Brand New Bag" was ranked number 72 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest songs of all time. (In 2010 the magazine updated its list, and the song was moved up a rank to number 71.) The song is currently ranked as the 121st greatest song of all time, as well as the 8th best song of 1965, by Acclaimed Music.

Excellent list and rollout, Hymie! It has been a pleasure to revisit the highights of the extensive career of James Brown!
Here it is the Spotify playlist with the Top 100 except "Rapp Payback," not available (at least) in my country.

Thanks, but the playlist should start with #100 and end with #1.

Well, I prefer to listen to it from "best" to "worst." Anyway everyone can transfer the songs from my playlist and do their own playlist, sorting the songs as they wish.

Also thanks from me for the rollout! Would have preferred for more funk tracks in the list, but all the great ones are in, so I really can't complain.
