I picked Road Ladies - it's a pretty basic blues but the lyrics are pretty fine, and Frank & Flo & Eddie's vocals raise this one far above a standard blues. It's a great air guitar song -- maybe that's why I keep going back to it. Practice, practice, practice! 20 Small Cigars gets the runner-up, because it goes through my head about 1/3 of my waking hours, and I never want it to go away.

Same here. It's Frank's best blues song, IMO.

The Nancy & Mary Music

Chunga's get's HM. And wasn't voted for because of all the stunning live versions I've heard.

I love that track. It's the only live one on the album, but I had to go with Transylvania Boogie. Gotta love that guitar. I wish P/O would open a show with it one day.

Yea I agree w/ JimmieD, very hard to pick this one. However, I chose Rudy.. its a simple song, w/ a great hook at the end, the vocals Mark and Howard do in it are beautiful.

I find it difficult to choose a favourite from any of Zappa's albums, but I generally manage to choose one. For some reason or other, I just can't do it with the Chunga's Revenge album.

Probably "Transylvania Boogie".

I really love "Sharleena" too though, beautiful melody.
