If you have not heard the original Valerie, check it out- https://youtu.be/1YpxZw3bN1Q

I think Mr Z missed the boat on this by not showcasing Roy Estrada on lead vocals. The crying bit in the song would have been perfect.

Bite it Marie!

OT: Yeah I really like this song as much as I like Zappa's version. Roy would have been a great lead. Oh In The Sky is the only song I can think of where he does lead vocals. Maybe some stuff on WRMF you could say he does leads but its not really vocals... It's something else.

Damn! How could I be such a fool? I completely forgot about that one. And it's a great song.

You need to check the version on Greasy Love Songs. It's more in the spirit of the original than the Burnt Weenie version.
