I can't seperate the music from the visuals. I voted Burt, cause the bar scenes are so faniliar. (My best friend played in bands. I'm used to that reception)

This Town Is A Sealed Tuna Sandwich (prologue)

Really the album needs to be taken as a whole piece.

I have to go with the minority. I pick Dance of the Rock and Roll Interviewers. I do love Tuna Fish Promenade and Bolero as well. 200 Motels imho is one of Zappa's masterworks. So its hard to choose a favorite song. But one of the unique things about it is the work with the human voice and the chanting of nonsensical words or key phrases for their effect directly on the ear. This is the pleasure of hearing certain syllables in conjunction with each other, with the meaning being of minor importance. This truly makes the lyrics one with the music, instead of the music being a carrier for the words and meaning.

Dance of the Just Plain Folks. Embryonic Bogus Pomp with some nice lo-fi charm.

Lonesome Cowboy Burt is a classic, but I voted for This Town Is A Sealed Tuna Sandwich (prologue). Outstanding tune.
