one of zappa's first band mates was don van vliet (aka Captain Beefheart) strangely successful as well. i actually met him at 7-11 convenience store one night--he was buying ice cream. not that this has anything to do with this thread...sorry, saw the name zappa and this is what came to mind.

Agreed -- my cousin was a Zappaphyte back in the 70s and I always thought "why?". I remember a girlfriend back then started breaking it off with me when I criticized the fact that she listened to Peter Gabriel's early albums and early Talking Heads -- she was right to. Led Zep on Cadillac commercials? Ozzy played at NFL football games? All the seemingly subversive stuff from back then has gotten its due.

Every time I listen to a Zappa guitar solo now , I think "Man I was missing this?" I think it was the "yellow snow" type lyrics that made me not pay attention to the music.

But in this thread it sure kills the replies!

Here's an obscure one I haven't heard in years.... until yesterday, when it was played on the radio. It was a hit song, and I was very young the last time I heard it.

"I've had nothing but bad luck
Since the day I saw the cat at my door
So I came into you sweet lady
Answering your mystical call
Crystal ball on the table
Showing the future,the past
Same cat with them evil eyes
And I knew it was a spell she cast."

Name that Tune!

Saw Thebes's music trivia thread, and it reminded me of name that tune.  


No cheating!


There's death from the beginning to the end of time
And I'm the cosmic champion and I hold a mystic sign
And the whole world's dying and the burdens mine


Name that tune!  Winner gets to post the next challenge.


(Mods, this old thread might be better in the Lounge than here.)
