The Ohio Players- FUNKY WORM

I picked this song up years ago at a record convention in Denver after seeing the Westbound label, and while I always found the Ohio Players to be incredibly innovative, this track is on a different level. It's hard to believe it actually made it to number one in the charts, given the insanely grating granny voice of the worm's "manager". But the synth solos have been sampled by about everyone and are pretty much the trademark of the N.W.A. sound. Beyond all of that, this old lady hustler manager who just wants to get paid for exploiting the funky worm cause "he can't spend it" is just an amazing and hilarious parody of the industry. I can here them cracking up in the studio when they recorded the vocals (hubbas anyone?).
