I said, ''I can get the Ikettes?'' and he said ''Sure''....http://frankzapppa.blogspot.com/2014/02/tina-turner-is-singing-with-frank-zappa.html
Natu from Addis Ababa, EthiopiaGreat song...
Thomas from Somerville, AlFrank was one of the most talented and knowlegable musicians of the century. His music was a fusion of Rock, Jazz, Blues and Gospel. His lyrics sometimes made no sense which is what added to his appeal. His undying conviction to not be mainstream is one of the reasons he had such an underground following. I've never heard a Frank Zappa song that was'nt full of energy and genious. Long Live Zap!!
Nick from Detroit, MiZappa actually played this song for one of his appearances on SNL.

"Feel It Still" by Portugal. The Man deals with lead singer John Gourley becoming a "rebel just for kicks" after having a daughter and settling down. "It's hard to be a punk when you're thinking about your baby daughter at home," he says.
