Lies! Damnable lies!

The word funk initially referred (and still refers) to a strong odor. It is originally derived from Latin "fumigare" (which means "to smoke") via Old French "fungiere" and, in this sense, it was first documented in English in 1620. In 1784 "funky" meaning "musty" was first documented, which, in turn, led to a sense of "earthy" that was taken up around 1900 in early jazz slang for something "deeply or strongly felt".

A long time ago, I read it came from an African word, li funki, meaning "body odor," and was meant to convey the universal human condition. That seems more appropriate. There's nothing gloomy about funk music, so the English definition doesn't really apply.
