[font=arial]Just reading the "Gregorypeckory"(sic) thread below and thought to meself - "I haven't listened to Studio Tan for a while so I'll stick it on". Well, on hearing it I remembered that there's a little riff in the middle of it that reminded me of something else. So I listened to it again and thought "hmmm....maybe it is/maybe it isn't/maybe nobody cares" - so this is the fuckin' deal if you're still reading, right? At approx 12 mins in, between "they decide to park their steaming vehicles in a circular pseudo-Wagon Train formation and have a LOVE-IN" and "Under the influence of a fantastic amount of TRENDY CHEMICAL AMUSEMENT AID" I can hear a couple of bars of "Lazy Sunday Afternoon" (I think) by The Small Faces. <br><br>So I searched the forum for this / did the Zappa Patio / donlope / google search etc etc and found nothing so does it just exist only in the imagination of the imaginer. And ultimately, who gives a fuck anyway?<br><br>And are there any more? <br><br>"Let Me Take You To The Beach LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LAAA....." is now on and it's fuckin' so cool!! Fuck it, I'm puttin' it on again..[/font]
