Surprisingly funky 1981 Muzak version of "Funkytown," along with reggae, folk, and metal versions

This surprisingly funky Muzak version of "Funkytown" (1979) by Lipps Inc. turned up on r/ObscureMedia. Steven Greenberg wrote the original while living in Minneapolis with aspirations of moving to New York City, a scene that would "keep me movin', keep me groovin' with some energy." Following the Reddit posting, a commenter alerted us that in recent years, Greenberg redid his jam in "15 different shades of sound" available for licensing and also curated a collection of fan covers from around the globe. Below, Greenberg's own folk, reggae, and metal versions:
