the phone rings and somebody says,
"hey, they made a movie about
Mahler, you ought to go see it.
he was as f*cked-up as you are."

James Brown (the songs not previously listed): 

Make It Funky
Get Up Off Of That Thing
Hot Pants

Sly Stone

If you want me to stay
Sing a simple song
Thank you

Anything by P-funk, basically

Check out Freakey Styley by the RHCP for some good covers of funk classics, along with some of their own tunes.
