Funky Worm slides all over Hip-Hop!

"Don't..Don't fight the feeling!"
Ohio Players-Funky Worm

Another Hip-Hop cornerstone song, as this one was sampled and rocked by way too many groups to name. This song is synonymous with West Coast Hip-Hop and rap music in general!
Laid down by The Ohio Players, "Funky Worm has one of the sickest synth lines ever, with it's winding, Arabic sound. The single would go on to be the first major hit for The Ohio Players, landing on the #1 spot on Billboard's R&B chart, and living again in again in numerous Hip-Hop records.
I'm sure the worm's manager is still looking for his royalties from all the samples! You can take a look at all the sampled song videos, and order them by clicking the Amazon links below!
