"Watermelon in Easter Hay" as written by and Frank Vincent Zappa....
This is the CENTRAL SCRUTINIZER
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...

    General CommentThis song has the best damn guitar solo I've ever heard. There is so much feeling and emotion in the playing here...it is easy to overlook it, because the phrasings are subtle, but he's really playing his heart out here.

    General CommentThere really is a lot of emotion in this solo. It's my favorite Zappa piece. I even heard that one of Frank's final wishes was that nobody play this song on stage but his son Dweezil. Just goes to show how strongly he felt about it.

    General CommentZappa once explained, on a radio brodcast, that the complete title of this song is "Getting this band to play something that sounds like music is like trying to grow a watermelon in Easter hay". Rehersal must have been pretty frutrating that day.

    General Commentwow. this is really gorgeous. whoda thunk that this could come out of Zappa? Seems like good background music to a sad movie, preferably one with a beach scene.

    General CommentThis song is beautiful, so much emotion on every single note... I agree with diabolusmagus; my favourite Zappa piece, by far.

    Frank Zappa was, is, and always will be a genius, in my opinion.
