If any of you care, there is an interesting reference to Zappa in a new Morrissey song.

From the new album 'I Am Not a Dog On a Chain', here is lyrics to a song called 'My Hurling Days Are Done'.

Time will mold you and craft you
But soon, when you're looking away
It will slide up and shaft you
Oh, time
Oh, time
No friend of mine

Mama, mama and teddy bear
Were the first full firm spectrum of time
Now my hurling days are done
And there's no one to tell and there's nowhere to run

Time, a blossoming clover
But soon it will say, "Okay, come on son, bend over"
Oh, time
Oh, time
No friend of mine

Oh mama, mama and teddy bear
Were the first full firm spectrum of time
But now my hurling days are done
And there's no one to tell and there's nowhere to run

Time places no pressure on you
But soon it explains what it means by the Funky Alfonso

Oh, time
Oh, time
No friend of mine

Oh mama, mama and teddy bear
Were the first full firm spectrum of time
But now my hurling days are done
And there is no one to tell and there's nowhere to run

Time will send you an invoice
And you pay with your strength and your legs and your sight and your voice

Oh mama, mama and teddy bear
Were the first full firm spectrum of time
But now my hurling days are done
And there is no one to tell and there's nowhere to run
----

As a huge fan of both, this really made me happy! Waiting now for a blatant reference in a Woody Allen film (he loves classical, jazz, and Zappa apparently!)
