Story

Like, omigawd! How could I have waited so long to include this in my OHWW tributes??? While Frank Zappa released some 62 albums in his lifetime, his only real top 40 hit (peaking at #32) was this novelty song recorded with his then-14 year old daughter Moon Unit. It's hard not to blame the track for introducing the ridiculous "Valspeak" to the country's vernacular and the equally ridiculous Nicolas Cage film Valley Girl for depicting the stereotype as an annoying subcultureNow if you'll excuse me, I suddenly have an urge to get my toenails done at the Galleria...
