Dirty Love – Frank Zappa

Don’t feel bad if you’ve never heard of Frank Zappa. It’s not the kind of music you’ll hear on radio, well, for those that still use a radio to listen to music.
My first encounter with Frank Zappa, the symbol, not the music, was in high school, when I was doing my monthly round at the school’s cafeteria. I was picked to help the driver get some supplies, and we went to this warehouse downtown. When we walked into the office, there was this cute girl, and she was wearing a button with Frank Zappa. He looked like an alien, and I couldn’t take my eyes off of that button. The girl thought I was starring at something else.


Frank was a man of many talents, and his music was hard to categorize.
One of my favorite quotes is also attributed to him:
So many books, so little time!

He, indirectly, contributed to the creation of one of the most recognizable guitar riffs of all time, and I am talking about Deep Purple’s Smoke On The Water. The song tells the story of a fire that burned down the Montreaux Casino, back in 1971, during a Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention concert. Luckily nobody was badly hurt, and we were left with another beautiful song.

Smoke on The Water, Main Riff:


Give me
Your dirty love
Like you might surrender
To some dragon in your dreams

Give me
Your dirty love
Like a pink donation
To the dragon in your dreams

I don’t need your sweet devotion
I don’t want your cheap emotion
Whip me up some dragon lotion
For your dirty love
Your dirty love

Give me
Your dirty love
Like some tacky little pamphlet
In your daddy’s bottom drawer

Give me
Your dirty love
I don’t believe you never seen
His book before

I don’t need no consolation
I don’t want your reservation
I only got one destination
And that’s your dirty love
Your dirty love

Give me
Your dirty love
Just like your mama
Make her fuzzy poodle do

Give me
Your dirty love
The way your mama
Make that nasty poodle chew

Ill ignore your cheap aroma
And your little-bo-peep diploma
I’ll just put you in a coma
With some dirty love
Some dirty love
That dirty love
That dirty love

The poodle bites!
(come on, frenchie)
The poodle chews it!
(snap it!)
