zdbd – Son of Suzy Creamcheese

This song comes in under 2 minutes, and throughout it’s an energetic, aggressive, bassy affair with an undeniable hook. I love the falsetto “yeeah-yeeaah” that occasionally punctuates the chorus, and the unyielding thrust of the verse carries me through the 93 second runtime.

Almost reminds me of some of the more upbeat Desert Sessions tracks.

Also, the hook is a direct parody of another famous song, I think, but I can’t place it. I want to say Louie Louie, for all of Zappa’s fondness/distaste for that riff, but I don’t think that’s right. Leave a comment if you know! (And if it’s not, then man, Zappa really knows how to write a riff.)
