I literally only just noticed the Louie Louie in Florentine Pogen and JTYAJ. I feel like such a dork. D:

My college roomate had a Coleman Hawkins CD with the song "Midnight Sun" and I was surprised to hear the melody from the "strictly commercial" bit of Nanook Rubs It there.

Wow. It never occurred to me that Fowler was playing the melody from Listen To The Music on his trombone during that Doobie Brothers part in Carolina. I've always loved that trombone part, too.

Thanks for the list waka, but for the purposes of this thread - forget it.

I'm a little bit dumb. I killed the thread, I'll delete the post.

That was a Zappa piece called "Charles Ives" (included on YCDTOSA 5).

To be technical about it Fowler didn't quote the Doobies song. The '84 vocalists added the "Listen To The Music" reference because the syllables matched, I guess.

^ Oh. Is that the deal? I didn't go back and check BF. I've never heard the '84 version. Had no idea. The syllables match perfectly. But not the notes? I wonder if he did that on purpose in '75?

Recent performances of Smoke on the Water by Deep Purple where they quote Peaches & Regalia during the "Frank Zappa and the Mothers..." line.

The bit from "Wild Love" reappearing in "Sinister Footwear" on Them Or Us was fairly startling the first time I heard it.

In Bogus Pomp there's "Who Needs the Peace Corps" quote.

It occurs during what originally was the "Tuna Fish Promenade" on 200 Motels.

Funny thing is, if you take the original lyrics sung by Flo & Eddie, right after "They'd either be dead" you can sing "or moved to San Francisco" right to the melody of "Go to San Fra-han-cis-co-oh-oh!" off "Peace Corps".

In Plastic People on Absolutely Free there is a little part where Zappa says "I dunno . . . sometimes I just get tired of ya, honey . . . it's—Ah—your hair spray . . . or something."

And then again in Thing Fish on the song Clowns On Velvet, Thing Fish Says "...since dat be 'bouts de onliest kinda bitch be able to tolerate de muthafucker's hair spray!"

It has to be intentional.

Maybe it is.
