Now I Smell Like Vaseline

Frank Zappa : Bobby Brown

On January 27, 1978, Frank Zappa performed "Bobby Brown" live at London's Hammersmith Odeon, a recording that ended up, with loads of post production sweetener, on the 1979 double album Sheik Yerbouti. Crude, politically incorrect and  even anti-American, this song-- about an upper middle class, overly privileged frat boy who gets his in the end ( literally)-- hit the top of the singles charts in Norway and Sweden and was top 5 in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
