This years exercise will be to select the the top 20 songs for a Zappa Broadway musical. The premise is identifying songs that the unsuspecting public will love. Once we pick the songs, we can backfill the plot/ dialog. First phase is nominating songs for the bake-off. 200 Motels and Joe's Garage are obvious resource, but lots of other possibilities exist.

FYI. The play will open with The Little House I Used to Live In.

So let's keep the Nominations open for about a week.

I'd like to nominate Planet of My Dreams. To me, this has always had a Broadway musical vibe to it.

You Didn't Try To Call Me for some Broadway-style teenage angst!
