Got You Covered - Uptown Funk

Today's installment of "Got You Covered" takes us to FunkyTown


"Uptown Funk" is a song recorded by English producer Mark Ronson, with guest vocals by American recording artist Bruno Mars, for Ronson's fourth studio album, Uptown Special. The song was written by Ronson, Jeff Bhasker, Mars and Philip Lawrence; with Ronson, Mars and Bhasker credited for producing it as well.

The single has been commercially successful, spending several weeks at the top of the charts. The single holds the title of the all-time most streamed track in a single week in the United Kingdom, having been streamed a record 2.56 million times in a single week.

The tune is rather catchy. Here, have a listen:

The latest craze it seems to be that new, catchy songs are quickly covered and parodied. I've seen quite a few versions of the song myself.

One of the better parodies is called "Suburban Funk" which features soccer moms living in surburbia, and of course, the lyrics are changed to fit their version.

Now that you've heard them both, who do you think did it best? Or do you have a different favorite version of the song?
