An Early (And Non-Nutritious) Clue to the New Direction

From 1974, please enjoy one of the late great Frank Zappa's most puckish satires of contemporary mores -- "Don't Eat the Yellow Snow."

Found at bee mp3 search engine

But I kid the famously prickly Mothers of Invention auteur.

In any case, as always, a coveted PowerPop No-Prize will be awarded to the first reader who gleans the song's relevance to the theme of tomorrow's Weekend Listomania.

No.

I think the category tomorrow is either

"songs by jackass pricks with ham-handed, tedious senses of humour,"
or
"songs about waste.

Songs about urinating. (no just kidding) Or, songs about warning or eating the wrong things?

Alaska or other Eskimo settings

Annoyingly asymetrical and agitating rhythm

Sarah Palin

Some kind of snarky reference to Bristol Palin (she was a naughty Eskimo. etc.)

Let's try a piggyback off last weeks Batshit Nuts Listomania.
Groups or Individuals whose music drives you nuts. Possibly a slight variation of that theme - Groups that make you batshit nuts because they have inexplicably achieved some degree of fame while SO many other much more deserving artists toil in relative obscurity. (I'm thinking REO Speedwagon off the top of my head)

I have no idea why that posted twice - sorry about that

steve simels said...

Okay...and I say this somewhat sheepishly, but for reasons that will be obvious after midnight, there's no point in anybody guessing further.

This has been a bit of a cheat, in other words.

My apologies for this whole sordid episode.
