Parliament – Wizard Of Finance (audio)
Parliament has all the best love songs. They cornered that market long ago, and no one has topped them since. “Wizard Of Finance” is a perfect example. It’s funky as all get out – Bootsy with the space bass – with lyrics full of the fun and ludicrous metaphors George Clinton and company were known for.
If I were a wizard of finance / I would probably invest my life in you / My dividend would be so tremendous, baby / Even Dow Jones won’t believe it’s true!
I smile every time I hear that line. Or even think of it. A funky, funky Parliament love song. Give it a listen.
