Great Moments In White Funk: ZZ Top's "Cheap Sunglasses"

I'm trying to suss out exactly what I mean by "white funk".  Like traditional funk, a good white funk song is usually about sexy sexiness.  It has a swagger that's easy to identify but hard to put into words.  There's some cool stuff going on with timing, and there's a great rythmn.
