zdbd – Why Dontcha Do Me Right

Another 2.5 minute tune, but much more aggressive than Big Leg Emma. The vocals are sour, strained, fed up, while remaining nearly monotonic. The harmony is straight rock-n-roll, with the exception of chords that sound as though they’ve been played on a harpsichord (or some approximation thereof).

Zappa takes one of his many distortion-laden guitar solos in the middle section — it’s not as rhythmically interesting as some of his later work would become, but his speed and precision is easily apparent.

The song includes a fake-out ending, before bubbling emotions return a renewed chorus to the fore, spinning out with babbling vocals and an electric guitar line.
