Έχοντας γεννηθεί στις 21 Δεκεμβρίου του 1940, ο Frank Zappa θα γινόταν σήμερα 80 χρόνων.
Θα ακούσουμε μερικά κομμάτια του, μπορεί κανείς να βρει πολλά ακόμα σε προηγούμενα posts, πληκτρολογώντας το όνομά του.
Ξεκινάμε με ‘Watermelon In Easter Hay’ από το “βιβλικό έπος”, Joe’s Garage.

Having been born on December 21, 1940, Frank Zappa would be 80 years old today.
We will hear some of his music, there are many more songs on this blog you can listen to, by typing his name.
We start with ‘Watermelon In Easter Hay’ from his “biblical epic” Joe’s Garage.


Joe has just worked himself into
an imaginary frenzy during the fade-out of his imaginary song
He begins to feel depressed now. He knows the end is near. He has realized
at last that imaginary guitar notes and imaginary vocals exist only in the mind
of the imaginer.
And ultimately, who gives a fuck anyway? (laugh)…Excuse me…so who gives a fuck anyway? So he goes back to his ugly little room and quietly dreams his last imaginary guitar solo…



Stay Safe!

As always, I’m happy to hear your thoughts, however I’d highly recommend a direct dialogue with the …’source’ so please visit Oannes’ page where you can also listen to the song ! 😉

* For my friends who didn’t know, or first timers here, Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and sometimes mine] musical selections. Do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
