in the mood for a little punky's whips this morning

This song, sung by Frank Zappa's drummer, Terry Bozzio, tells the story of how the drummer got a crush on a boy named Punky Meadows - because in the 70's boys looked like girls…

Here's a picture of Punky:

By the way, the video is not really work appropriate...  lyrics-wise and maybe playing-drums-in-underwear-wise.

Special thanks to Tom in Bend, Oregon who lead an impromptu Zappa Appreciation Workshop for me when I visited in 2009.  I learned all the intricacies of this great composer and his overly-talented and disciplined crew.

You've got to watch it 18 times to truly appreciate it.
