Overnite Sensation was among the first Zappa albums thaat I listened to and I simply loved all the songs, mainly because of the stories and the narrative. I also liked Dynamoe Humm's story and to this day, whenever anybody points up how articulately some love song is written, I recommend them to listen to this song.<br><br>One other thing is that the background music on this song, especially the thing with the bass guitar while FZ is speaking, always reminds me of the "theme songs" of the cheap German porn movies apparently from the 70's- early 80's, the cheap music that plays while Hans goes "Ja, ja, schoon, wundebaaaaa". I'm not really sure if FZ was inspired by these wonders of the seventh art but I still like Dynamoe Humm anyway.

You need a metal detector at your frontdoor and some new friends, eh?

This one has never been one of my favorites. <br><br>I think there are better versions of all the songs available on other albums.<br><br>I like watching the concert footage on the vid, though.
