Song Of The Day: Funkadelic – Maggot Brain

“Mother earth is pregnant for the third time/For ya’ll have knocked her up/I have tasted the maggots in the mind of the universe/I was not offended/For I knew I had to rise above it all/Or drown in my own shit.”

Unbridled genius right here. According to main man George Clinton, this solo was recorded by Eddie Hazel in one take. They later mixed out the rhythm section that originally played because the solo ruled so hard. Damn.
