It is so hard, but if I have to pick just one :o , I would have to say "The Illinois Enema Bandit" <br><br>That song got me into frank's music about 25 years ago (I was about 7 or 8 years old) My brother played "zappa in new york" album & I fell in love with it!<br><br>Still gets me going after all this time.

At any given moment, my answer to this query would fluctuate dramatically. However, when I want pure, unadulterated Frank, I turn to one of the many live versions of "The Torture Never Stops" and let the 'spirit' move me. You simply can't go wrong with a killer "Torture!" Try it. You'll like it.

As a hard-core you simply can`t  answer this...<br>some would say Bobby Brown. Ha! Some say Yellow Snow or tiny Lites...<br>Even if you`d ask for the best album I couldn`t make up my mind...<br>and even if you`d ask for the worst song and say The Radio Is Broken I would say: why? It made me lough quite a few times. Some somgs are a bit "weak" on record and become great in a live concert, others vice versa. so, let`s listen to ´em go!

I love "don´t eat the yellow snow". I really like the tone of Zappa´s voice when does those low doo-wop kinda things. "Duh duh dududu du du daduduh."
