[quote author=timmoggio82 link=board=legends;num=1138975208;start=45#50 date=03/14/06 at 14:43:46]it's a pity the great full band version of the piano intro from 1978 wasn't put on the Stage series.[/quote]<br>I suppose that still leaves open the possibility that a band with the quality of Banned From Utopia or similar could do a big band rendition or Ensemble Modern could do a classical ensemble version. In fact, the more I think about it, there's still a great deal of potential for decent Zappa cover albums.

I get San Ber'dino in my head all the time... just the guitar lick after the first set of measures.  Then comes the lyrics.

To me the tune that always gets in my head is pygmy twilight - love the riff

[quote author=polydigm link=board=legends;num=1138975208;start=45#49 date=03/14/06 at 14:34:14]<br>I've always liked this and then recently I downloaded the score from Zappatistas so now I'm a bit obsessed with it. This has to be one of his best "serious" compositions. Fragments of it are there in my head all the time.[/quote]<br><br>That ratio at measure 36 is something I'm sneaking into my own works all the time (9:8, 32nd notes). <br>It may not be measure 36, though, depending on the score you have. Is it the piano score from the FZ SONGBOOK, or the DOWNBEAT score? I need the DOWNBEAT score, so if you have it please send me a PM.

I had the "Pound For A Brown" theme stuck in my head so I threw on The Yellow Shark.  Now "The Girl In The Magnesium Dress" has knocked my brain clean the fuck out of my skull.   :-/ woooooooooooh!

snippets of Yo Mama from SB seem to be the most prolific spontaneously appearing earworms for me.

As for that hiccup, that's in every Ryko CD--it seems there was a tape break and it was patched--or at least it sounds like that.

I woke up this morning with Tinsel Town Rebellion playing in my head and the only time I was able to shake it was while listening to the first disk of The Best Band You Never Heard In Your Life.

The Purse <br><br>Al Surratt: Oh, jeez. Beast nut [...] Spearmint Gum. And she also has Wrigley's. Uh, she's ambivalent. That's for sure. There's a small note here that says-- no, it's a receipt. Your receipt uh, it's, it's uh five cents. That must be for the gum. Coleman 626 621 9040. A girl with very poor handwriting. That means she is, uh, not very diligent. Here's a letter to Barstow, she says. It says, "Desert lover" . . . No. (whistles) Oh, this is from Barstow. The letter is from Barstow. Frank!<br>FZ: What?<br>Al: The letter is from Barstow.<br>FZ: Oh yeah?<br>Al: Yeah. There it is, boy.<br>FZ: Alright, so read the letter.<br>Al: Dig. Oh, we'll analyze this. A couple desert guys. Oh, hidden, hidden ideas here . . . See, "guess what. The most exciting thing has happened to me . . . " Oh, Frank!<br>FZ: What?<br>Al: Get this! "I was elected homecoming princess."<br>FZ: Oh yeah?<br>Al: Guess how princess is spelled. P-R-I-N-C-I-S.<br>FZ: [...]<br>Al: Yeah, with an exclamation point behind it.<br>FZ: Yeah . . . <br>Al: "Isn't that fabuloss? I am so excited when the captain of the team and the coach told me. I was a happy and excited. I wanted to cry. And jump up and down and hug and kiss everyone. But somehow I managed to control myself. Mary Comerfound is queen, and Sheryl Bridges and myself are princiseses. You know something? I feel just as honored with being a princess as I would being queen. Our homecoming is the Friday and we play against Palmdale. I wish you could come up for it. That would be so neat. Oh, Edie, I am so excited about the whole thing. I wanted to write and tell you the first day I found out but I never found the time. Another big shock: John Gossit is back in town. Remember how he ran away from home last year? Well, he came back."<br>FZ: (laughs) Oh, shit . . . <br>Al: "He was living in Hawaii, and is going into the Marine Corps next week. You should see him, Edie. He's grown up so much. His hair is real long."<br>FZ: (laughs)<br>Al: "Surfer-style."<br>FZ: Oh, shit . . . <br>Al: "Down to his shoulders. But it looks so neat on him. He really lived the life of-- of a king over there. He was a real surfer, board and all. He slept out on the beach at night. He talked to me for a long time Friday night after the game and asked if George and I were still going together. I told him, 'Yes,' and he gave me not-so-happy look and said, 'Oh.' Boy, if I weren't going steady, I'd sure jump at a chance with him again. I just can't believe how much he has changed and all of it is for the better. Oh well. Good thing he's living-- good thing he's leaving next week. The temperature-- the temptation might be too much for me. Guess what? I have a French poodle. That's right. A pedigree. [...]"<br>
