* LoudnessWar: To an extent, especially on A Funk Odyssey, where the multitracks were actually delivered clipped and distorted. This is particularly obvious when hearing a track like Main Vein and any of its remixes, where the distorted vocals stand in contrast to the usually well produced backing tracks.

* ChartDisplacement: In Their sole Hot 100 entry was "Alright", which (to say the U.S., they had 14 songs that charted higher least) is far less famous than their signature "Virtual Insanity".Insanity" and "Canned Heat".

'''Jamiroquai''' is an English band formed in 1992 with singer Jay Kay as frontman. The original line-up included Jay Kay (vocals), Toby Smith (keyboard), Stuart Zender (bass), Nick Van Gelder (drums), Wallis Buchanan (didgeridoo), and Alec Moran (pipeau), though as of 2011 the only original members left are Jay Kay and Derrick Mc Kenzie (drummer circa 1994). The band was formed after Jay Kay's unsuccessful attempt to become the lead singer of fellow [[TheNineties Nineties]] jazz/soul band '''The Brand New Heavies'''. Jamiroquai has released seven studio albums, the latest of which was released in October 2010.

* UrbanLegend: A Funk Odyssey's Test Pressing version syncs up perfectly with ''Film/TwoThousandAndOneSpaceOdyssey''. The final version of the album doesn't, due to removing interludes, shortening songs, and adding "Love Foolosophy" (a newly written song for a single) in place of "Do It Like We Used To Do", which Sony insisted on. It is highly likely this was intentional, because of the album title and the various homages to the movie featured on it. The album's title, which at that point was 2001: A Funk Odyssey before Sony made them cut it down. The album also includes a song called Twenty Zero One, and one of the interludes on the test pressing was The Blue Danube waltz - taken directly from the soundtrack to ''Film/TwoThousandAndOneASpaceOdyssey'', which the band also used as a live interlude too. The band's idea of syncing the album is believed to have been done in reference to the similar theory of Pink Floyd's Music/TheDarkSideOfTheMoon syncing up with Film/TheWizardOfOz.

* IAmTheBand: To a lot of people, Jay Kay is Jamiroquai. To be fair, the band members started disappearing from promotional material as early as the second album (and they make only a 10-second cameo in the "Virtual Insanity" video.) However, the other band members are quite happy to stay in the shadows whilst Jay does all the promotion.

In recent years, the band members have been more likely to respond to fans' questions about potential new albums/tours than Jay is.


Added DiffLines:

* RearrangeTheSong: The band did this constantly in live performances, frequently extending songs, and making the songs more jazzy or more hard rocking. For instance, compare the studio version of Use The Force to the one on Live At Montreux.

* PromotedFanboy: Nick Fyffe was in the process of applying to a Jamiroquai tribute band, when he got the offer to join Jamiroquai in place of Stuart Zender, the band's bass player for their first three albums, who left the band during the making of ''Synkronized''.



* ThrowItIn: According to ''Pop-Up Video,'' there was supposed to be a lot more blood coming out of the walls at the end of "Virtual Insanity." However, the pump broke, the crew got doused, and only a small trickle on one wall actually made it into the room. The director decided that looked better and kept it.
** [[WordOfGod Jay Kay]] mentioned that Funktion was included on Travelling Without Moving as an unlisted bonus track for this reason. It was an improvised jam, not an actual song, and the band had a lot of fun making it, as can be heard from their occasional laughter.



* WhatCouldHaveBeen: If Jay Kay had been successful in becoming lead singer for the Brand New Heavies, who knows what musical history might have been made.
** ''A Funk Odyssey'' was originally a longer, more experimental album that would have synced up to 2001: A Space Odyssey but wasn't finished by the time Sony made them make changes to it. "Feel So Good", "You Give Me Something", "Stop Don't Panic" and "Twenty Zero One" were all of extended length; "Main Vein" had no vocal track; "Do It Like We Used To Do" featured instead of "Love Foolosophy" (which hadn't been written yet), and the album featured three interludes to push it into pseudo-ConceptAlbum territory.

** ''Travelling Without Moving'' is possibly a reference to the {{Dune}} book series as the interstellar travel method of folding space is described as "travelling without moving".
