"A Funky Space Reincarnation" is a 1978 funk single recorded and released in 1979 by Marvin Gaye on the Tamla label.
In this song, he described a parallel universe where in the future, he's a captain of a "space bed" and he meets a woman that reminds him of his first wife, Anna.
He then tells the woman that they'd probably get "married in June" and tells her to "smoke a joint from out of Venus".
The song, like many of the tracks on Here, My Dear, doesn't have a distinctive melody, hook or a chorus and was obviously inspired by the likes of funk musicians such as Parliament-Funkadelic and Earth, Wind & Fire. The song's bridge is a reprise of his song "Anger," found earlier on the album.
The song became a modest hit on the R&B charts, where it peaked at number twenty-three there. Marvin cut his very first music video with this song where surrounded by his band and a duo of sexy female dancers, he danced and lip-synched the song in a flashy red outfit.
The song has been recently used in the advert for the Dior perfume J'adore starring Charlize Theron.
