Day 95: Teenage Wind

I remember at a New Year’s Eve party, someone had a Zappa CD, You Are What You Is.  I heard it from the other room and I had to listen. I am not sure what it was that drew me to it.

You Are What You Is is a dense and relentless album. Unlike many Zappa albums, there are no really long jazzy tracks that take up a lot of space. It is full of songs, many of them imitations of pop song styles.  I heard this song, the first track on the album and I had to listen. I am not sure why, but I loved this album and it brings back memories of that time when I was in college and lived above a bookstore.
