I still don't understand why this tune is so popular (at least over here in Europe where it was one of the only Zappa singles to chart...). One of FZs least interesting compositions, IMO.

I figured it always gave people an opportunity to get into some of his other stuff. <br><br>Actually in NJ in around 1986-1987 I heard the Muzak (instrumental only) version of Bobby Brown in a department store where I was working. There was no mistaking the melody. It had to be a Zappa fan who decided to include that in the Muzak mix....or rather to even produce the Muzak version.

Meanwhile if you ask somebody if he or she knows Bobby Brown they think of the singer of the same name - which always made me wonder, how could somebody expect to be taken seriously with that name since the guy in the song is such a fake-asshole person?!?  :P
