Oddly enough, no, Jewish Princess never came up - I don't think Israelis really can identify with that song, as it's really a North American cultural phenomenon.
but I was thrilled that they did "Yo Mama" at some point I always loved that song both musically and lyrically. As I mentioned before, Ben Thomas added plenty of local references and little jibes, flirted with the front row crowd, at one point he jumped off the stage and sang to people in the front row individually. Sheila played "Hava Nagila" at one point during one of her solos And on the encore, Dweezil called up a few of the young ladies to dance - but they didn't really do the full "dance contest" bit that Frank used to do. The crowd was definitely into the show, and there were many Zappa freaks there who knew all the tunes, all the words, all the right places to laugh and cheer... --- In Zappa-List@yahoogroups.com, duckb...@... wrote: > > > Were there any requests to do Jewish Princess? > Marc > > > Quoting Eli Marcus <emi...@...>: > > > The ZPZ show just conquered Tel Aviv 2 nights ago! > > On Wednesday night, 14 July, at 10:00 PM local time. > > ZPZ gave a 2 1/2 hour show with no intermission > > the band was great, the show was great! > > vocalist Ben Thomas seems to have done his homework/research before > > going on stage, > > as he managed to add-lib a whole list of local references into the songs, > > including the names of a fashionable local restaurant or two... > > > > > > -- > > Eli Marcus > > www.EliMarcus.com > > blog: http://elisblues.blogspot.com > > http://www.myspace.com/elisblues > > "Do you hate people? > > I don't hate them... > > I just feel better when they're not around." > > Charles Bukowski > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > ------------------------------------ > > > > For further Z-related fun, please visit http://www.thebignote.com or > > http://www.killuglyradio.com , thank you.Yahoo!
