Funkytown Stories
    Steven Greenberg discusses the unique life of his song 'Funkytown.' From its genesis in a Minneapolis studio, to its rise to worldwide hit status under the moniker Lipps Inc., and to its long afterlife in numerous movies, ads and TV shows, 'Funkytown' endures as a classic pop
    confection, and a landmark of the disco era. 'Funkytown' is also making news by being the first song to have a request entered with the Copyright office to revert ownership rights back to the author. The copyright reversion issue has serious implications for artists, and 'Funkytown' is blazing the trail.
