10 More Funky Soundtracks Every DJ Should Own

Ten more funktastic soundtracks no DJ should be without.

Hell Up In Harlem (1973)

Edwin Starr! What on earth's he good for? Composing soundtracks to blaxploitation flicks, that's what! Listen to this!

La Polizia Sta A Guardare (1973)
More funky psychedelic Euro goodness, this time from an Italian cop movie. If you're ever being chased by the fuzz while driving a FIAT, you need this on your stereo.

Across 110th Street (1972)

Most people think this is the theme tune to 'Jackie Brown'. We know better.

Black Caesar (1973)

The Godfather of Soul, the hardest working man in show business, James Brown himself, knocked together this score for Larry Cohen's black gangster epic.

The Mack (1973)
Motown legend Willie Hutch provides a deliciously mellow soundtrack for this early Richard Pryor flick.

The Harder They Come (1972)
Jamaica's contribution to the blaxploitation craze features some great tunes from its star, Jimmy Cliff.

Trouble Man (1972)
Even big-hitters like Marvin Gaye were writing soundtracks for blaxploitation movies back in the day.

Saturday Night Fever (1977)

If I'm not mistaken, this is still the biggest selling soundtrack album of all time. It's certainly one of the funkiest.

That's the Way of the World (1975)

This movie about the music biz was a massive flop but it does feature a soundtrack from funk legends Earth, Wind & Fire.

Car Wash (1976)
One of the most recognizable tunes of the disco era was in fact the title tune of this 1976, Rose Royce starring movie.
