Yeh, you're right! It is insane! Tinsletown Rebellion is an excellent live album.
Its really hard to pick a "best ever" Zappa song because there are so,so many, but if it came to the crunch I would have to choose Peaches.
Ill probably change my mind tomorrow when I give Roxy a whirl!

I heard a good cover of this by the Dixie Dregs. It's on their California Screamin' live album. I guess Dweezil guested on it.

So "One of these days, I'm going to cut you into little pieces" is not considered a lyric?

Top 11 Mostly Instrumental Rock Songs...

Otherwise, Frank's rap in the end of Peaches III would prevent it from counting (in our list, anyway).

"Soul Finger" also has the title line. "Flying" has vocals, though not lyrics.

Sorry, but no cigar for you. 8)

I happen to be, among other things, a DC5 completist. I put together a special DC5 instrumental program.

By the way, it's "Ol' Sol", rather than "Ol' Soul". Did spellcheck get'cha?

Here it is (15 tracks in chronological order):

Total running time: 43:15

Chiquita (1st Version) (2:06)
First Love (2:40)
I Walk The Line (2:48)
Chiquita (2nd Version) (2:13)
Time (2:20)
Rumble (2:36)
Theme Without A Name (2:03)
Move On (2:14)
Blue Monday (2:59)
Ol' Sol (2:01)
Dum-Dee-Dee-Dum (1:50)
No Stopping (2:04)
When I'm Alone (2:35)
Sweet Memories (2:43)
On The Move (2:23)
Pumping (1:48)
All Night Long (3:12)
Five By Five (2:50)

Oh Gosh ! Just when I think I outdid the ol' wizard
:mrgreen:

Of course, it's Ol'Sol, my mistake.
When I was 14, once a week, I "animate" a radio on the Lunch Hour and Ol'Sol was our theme.

I'll never see the day when I can learn you something !
