After all of the posts, I need to ad Black Napkins to my list (thanks Steve
Marshall, for jogging an age-clouded memory). And I respond to this only
because I also have tried to play tunes for non-initiates and I have always
used Peaches (HR) as my representative tune...
(I also concur with Marc, I'll feel different about it all tomorrow.

Like many of you it is difficult to assemble a small list of greatest
Zappa songs. Sometimes I can listen to Punky's Whips over and over;
not as much for the lyrics, but for its musical foundation. Willie
the Pimp (HR) always is captivating, but I also thnk the same thing
about most live MOI stuff '68-'69, etc.) that I'm lucky to listen to.
I have on several occasions made some non Zappa friends listen to
Son Of Mr. Green Genes (HR) telling them that that is the sinlge tune
that could completely represent Frank if I had to choose only one. So
that is my all time favorite Zappa song, but after I wake up tomorrow
I'm sure I'll kick myself for not chossing a different one.
