I'm looking down at Zappa Radio and 'Holiday In Berlin, Full-Blown' is playing..I like that one a lot.And that reminds me of 'The Little House I used To Live In'.<br><br>I like any of the 'Peaches' and/or 'Sofas'...And 'Take Your Clothes Off When You Dance', from, You Can't 6...and for some reason I just love  'Thriteen' from that same CD.<br><br>But I still pick, 'The Gumbo Variations'...<br><br>Not nessacelery as the best,just one of my many favorites..  ':-*'

Watermelon in Easter Hay. It has all the genius of Frank, plus emotion. And it's not 4/4. The original version is the best one.

It's impossible to make a definitive choice. In this moment my favorites are Little Umbrellas, Sheik Yerbouti Tango and Watermelon.
