Funkadelic – Maggot Brain

One of the most beautiful songs I’ve ever heard. I remember the first time my friend Eben played this when we were hanging out and I instantly fell in love with the dreamy guitar solo. This song, and the next on the album “Can You Get to That?” are both instant classics.


“Mother Earth is pregnant for the third time
For y’all 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”
