Why has elegance found so little following? Elegance has the disadvantage that hard work is needed to achieve it and a good education to appreciate it. - Edsger Wybe Dijkstra

HA! Good Fun!

Excellent song for sure. But if you listen to what's going on, in the first link Zappa's band is not playing what Vinnie explains in the second. In other words, for whatever reason Zappa has rearranged Keep It Greasy so that it's entirely in 4/4, as you can easily check if you listen to the first link. The complex and Mahavishnuish 19/16 and 21/16 times have all been dropped. The live version definitely works, but it just isn't what Vinnie explains.

I'd say the answer to that question is kind of like the answer to "who's the sucker in this poker game?"*

Acoustic Rammstein. No less disturbing than the hard rock version...

I've gone down a rabbit hole I don't want to be pulled out of.

Youtube sometimes comes up with the weirdest suggestions... but I actually liked this one (even if completely unrelated to what I was searching for)

Don't ask me why but I love this kid and his "first time hearing/reaction" videos. Feels joyful or reminds me of me listening to such tunes way back when  The more recent ones include his brother as well.  I spent a whole afternoon going through a lot of them, getting to listen to some old fave songs and grin at the reactions/head bopping/comments.  (actual music usually starts around 40 seconds to one minute in)

Jen Usellis is a singer from Chicago, Illinois, known as the "Klingon Pop Warrior."
She's covered songs entirely in the Star Trek language, including Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On," Pat Benatar's "Love Is a Battlefield" and Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance." But with Frozen 2 in the news, her winter-planet track has exploded in popularity.
The song, translated, is called "ylbuSQo."

I know the guy is long dead and half an hour of drum solos is not everyones jar of vegemite, but the guy was an impressive drummer, not letting age getting in the way of his skill....

Civilization, in fact, grows more and more maudlin and hysterical; especially under democracy it tends to degenerate into a mere combat of crazes; the whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary. - H.L. Mencken

Just one of those oddities I run across sometimes. At first I didn't like it, but then I went back and listened a couple more times. Not sure exactly what it would classify as (it sort of changes pace and character 4 minutes in). Made in Japan?
