    Nah, let's not get ridiculous! LOL. As long as you aren't a "Belieber", we will stop at the music thing. HAHA.

    No. Nothing like that. I like Ambrosia though. It goes back to my days of enjoying getting into girl's panties.

    It's not a "card", and I'm not arguing with you despite your attempts to make this into another Us vs Them pissing match. He's rich from his pop music, that's just a fact. Lots of folks I know thinks he's a genius and virtuoso musician. I think he's done very well for himself, that's all. YMMV.

    Zappa is an aquired taste and some people just wont catch on. Satire is that way, especially when it's served as dry as Frank could be at times. And some of his stuff ran to the sophomoric now and then, but then he would write something like this--

    Flakes! Flakes! Flakes! Flakes!
    They don't do no good They never be workin'
    When they oughta should
    They waste your time
    They're wastin' mine
    California's got the most of them
    Boy, they got a host of them

    Swear t'God they got the most ,At every business on the coast
    Swear t'God they got the most ,At every business on the coast
    They got the Flakes

    Flakes! Flakes!

    They can't fix yer brakes , You ask 'em, "Where's my motor?"
    "Well, it was eaten by snakes . . . "

    You can stab 'n shoot 'n spit
    But they won't be fixin' it
    They're lyin' an' lazy
    They can be drivin' you crazy

    Swear t'God they got the most ,At every business on the coast
    Swear t'God they got the most ,At every business on the coast
    (Take it away, Bob . . . )

    I asked as nice as I could
    If my job would
    Somehow be finished by Friday
    Well, the whole damn weekend
    Came 'n went, Frankie
    (Wanna buy some mandies, Bob?)
    You know what? They didn't do nothin'
    But they charged me double for Sunday

    Now, you know, no matter what you do, ,They gonna cheat 'n rob you
    'N then they'll give you a bill ,'N it'll get your senses reelin'
    And if you do not pay ,They got computer collectors
    That'll get you so crazy ,'Til your head'll go through th' ceilin'
    Yes it will!

    I'm a moron 'n this is my wife , She's frosting a cake With a paper knife
    All what we got here's American made It's a little bit cheesey, But it's nicely displayed
    Well we don't get excited when it Crumbles 'n breaks We just get on the phone
    And call up some Flakes
    They rush on over 'N wreck it some more
    'N we are so dumb They're linin' up at our door
    Well, my toilet went crazy Yesterday afternoon
    The plumber he says "Never flush a tampoon!"
    This great information Cost me half a week's pay
    And the toilet blew up Later on the next day ay-eee-ay
    Yeah ay-eee-ayYeah ay-eee-ayYeah ay-eee-ayBlew up the next day
    WOO-OOO

    One Two Three Four!

    Flakes! Flakes!
    Flakes! Flakes!
    Flakes! Flakes!

    One Two Three Four!
    FLAKES!

    We are millions 'n millions We're coming to get you
    We're protected by unions So don't let it upset you
    Can't escape the conclusion It's probably God's Will
    That civilization Will grind to a standstill
    And we are the people Who will make it all happen
    While yer children is sleepin', Yer puppy is crappin'
    You might call us Flakes Or something else you might coin us
    We know you're so greedy That you'll probably join us

    We're coming to get you, we're coming to get you
    We're coming to get you, we're coming to get you
    We're coming to get you, we're coming to get you
    We're coming to get you, we're coming to get you

    Of course there is also the Dangerous Kitchen.

    The DANGEROUS KITCHEN
    If it ain't't one thing it's another
    In the middle of the night when you get home
    The bread things are all dry 'n' scratchy
    The meat thing
    Where the cats ate through the paper
    The can things with the sharp little edges
    That can cut your fingers when you're not looking
    The soft little things on the floor that you step on
    They can all be DANGEROUS
    1, 'u-xx_large_top_margin': $height > 1}">


    Sometimes
    The milk can hurt you
    (If you put it on your cereal
    Before you smell the plastic container)
    And the stuff in the strainer
    Has a mind of its own
    So be very careful
    In the dangerous kitchen
    When the night time has fallen
    And the roaches are crawlin'
    In the kitchen of danger
    You can feel like a stranger

    The bananas are black
    The got flies in the back
    And also the chicken
    In the dish with the foil
    Where the cream is all clabbered
    And the salad is frightful
    Your return in the evening
    Can be less than delightful

    You must walk very CAREFUL
    You must not lean against it
    It can get on you clothing
    It can follow you in
    As you walk to the bedroom
    And you take all your clothes off
    While you're sleeping
    It crawls off
    It gets in your bed
    It could get on your face then
    It could eat your complexion
    You could die from the danger
    Of the dangerous kitchen
    1, 'u-xx_large_top_margin': $height > 1}">


    Who the fuck wants to clean it?

    It's disgusting and dirty
    The sponge on the drainer
    Is stinky and squirty
    If you squeeze it when you wipe up
    What you get on your hands then
    Could un-balance your glands and
    Make you blind or whatever
    In the DANGEROUS KITCHEN
    At my house tonight


    I LOVE FRANK

    No one should care what music anyone likes. As long as you like it. My fav band is the Foo Fighters. You know how much hate they get online? (A lot) You know how much I care? (Absolutely 0)

    Every time I hear the like VS hate argument on the internet it always brings me to this.
