Name that funk-sounding song...with very few lyrics...

What is this song I keep hearing (at restaurants, on TV, movies, etc.)? I don't think it's new, but you never know. It has very few words, and the ones I do hear sound like "good time" or "good thing" - maybe even "fun time". The pronunciation is stretched out, and it might have a cowbell. It's sort of a '70s "disco" or "funk" sound. *Please read the extended explanation for what I know it is NOT. [more inside]

What's that cone-ripping, Sugalumps-like bass?

What's the bass & drum style of Flight of the Conchords Sugalumps, particularly 9th through 15th second of the video, called? Rhapsody's genres has something called Electro-Funk which includes artists like the Bass Mekanik that include test tones on some albums and Bass Transmission. I'm particularly interested in the sustained low low bass "notes," particularly when combined with higher percussion (snare) in a really danceable, but somewhat slow tempo.

What album cover showed Lionel Richie as the Judas of funk?

What album cover featured notable musicians as the twelve apostles of funk, with Lionel Richie as Judas? This was described to me in the early nineties. I think it was the cover of a hip hop album. Perhaps it wasn't an album cover, but some other artwork. Google returns a couple of hits for Richie as "Judas of funk," but other searches led nowhere.

Can you help me find obscure funk mp3s to sample?

Help me find just the right online crate to dig in - I'm working on a hipstery disco record (think Daft Punk, MSTRKRFT) and would love to find some old happy, dancey funk/soul/whatever you want to call it to sample, but I'd like to shy away from anything super mainstream or typical. I have no idea where to start, but I know there are all manner of mp3 blogs for other obscure genres, so I'm hoping you mefites can point me at your favorites that will help me address this particular need.

Certify a funk bass player

I'm going to become a demigod bass player, relied upon to skillfully secrete pelvis-destroying, improvised funk-era bass lines. Who will I listen to? What albums will I know by heart?
