^ Sometimes I wonder if Mark Knopfler was influenced by that CB guitar.

Great song to be honest. I really like Zappa's vocals being so high in the mix. He was a master of writing simple pop songs when he wanted to. He could have been huge if he concentrated on them only. But I'm glad he didn't.

Yeah. I also like the simple yet highly effective horn arrangement. He saves the best part for the final verse. Perfect. I think my favorite moment is the simple little piano fill right after the first "magic mama" line. George Duke! Opens a new vista in the music with that little part.

Never listened to Ween. Maybe I should.

Just realized how magical that song is. It has so much going on to such a deceptively simple song. Those piano fills are beautiful.

Great album overall to be honest. Definitely prefer it to (') even though I love Stink-Foot and that is in my top 10.
