No order.<br><br>[glow=blue,2,300]The Orange County Lumber Truck:[/glow]<br><br>Just a beautiful track, but there are subtle hints at dissonance.<br><br>[glow=red,2,300]Mom & Dad:[/glow]<br><br>Christ, the lyrics are simply fantastic. <br><br>[glow=pink,2,300]The Torture Never Stops:[/glow]<br><br>Just a superb, hypnotic epic. I can think of no artist other than Zappa who could've pulled off a song like TTNS.<br><br>[glow=yellow,2,300]Return Of The Son Of The Monster Magnet:[/glow]<br><br>Just mad.<br><br>[glow=orange,2,300]Lumpy Gravy Part 1:[/glow]<br><br>Superb.

Chunga's Revenge - I can never get enough of this one.  I love both Frank's and Ian's solo, Aynsley's interplay with Frank, and how complimenting the bassline is, yet so simple.<br>Eat That Question - Same reason why I love Chunga's.  The Interplay between all instruments and how does one conceive such a riff and tease us with it!  Too fuckin' brilliant!<br>Holiday In Berlin - What's not to love about this one?  Wonderful melody and whoelse busts guitar solos that sound sooo... Zappa?<br>Dog Breath, In The Year Of Plague - I always felt that this one would've been the best to fit a theme for a television series dedicated to anything Zappa.<br>Montana - No one else will ever write a song about dental floss and maintain such genius!

Trouble Every Day had nothing to do about psycho-delia whatsoever.  It was exclusively about race relations, and very specifically about the Watts Riots.

Does anyone know if Sparlatacus was kidding?   I mean to each his own, but fuck, that's a weak list!

Just five, eh? Oh, well. Here's my top five.<br><br>"The Orange County Lumber Truck" - a great horn line with some special guitar playing. The concluding solo on the Ahead Of Their Time version is pretty good, too.<br><br>"Florentine Pogen" - Napoleon's second best performance. A song without precedence. <br><br>"Cheepnis" - Napoleon's best performance. Astonishing, breakneck funk-jazz-rock. <br><br>"Fine Girl" - Awesome group lead vocals and a brilliant choral ending. <br><br>"Goblin Girl" - Much the same as "Fine Girl" with a never-ending stack of vocals.

I know, I remember reading some of his posts last year.  His posts always struck me as deranged.   Heavily deranged.

Too hard, there's so many songs and I have a lot of favorites. These five I've always really liked:<br><br>Sharleena (Lost Episodes version) - Best version in my opinion of a great song. Excellent performances on this. Some killer solos and jams. This version has a great groove to it.<br><br>Watermellon in Easter Hay - One of the all time greatest guitar solos. Uner the right conditions it almost brings a tear to my eyes.<br><br>Doreen - Nice update of the "Crusing with Ruben and the Jets" type vibe. I love how it turns into a rave up at the end and all the overlapping voclas and adlibs. Great singing on this.<br><br>Trouble Every Day - The lyrics to this song still apply today. These days too many people are willing to just take things lying down and have taken on a "Don't make waves" mentality.<br><br>RDZNL - All the complicated changes in tempo, key and mood Zappa was able to fit in such a short piece is incredible.
