  • From the 1982 Zappa album SHIP ARRIVING TOO LATE TO SAVING A DROWNING WITCH. (sav-man)
  • This was a song that Zappa had started but had been unable to finish to his satisfaction until he came up with the idea of having his daughter, Moon, imitate the typical "Val" accent in her dialogue (which was totally ad-libbed and later edited). Moon herself was NOT a Val; she told MUPPET MAGAZINE that she was more into reading (i.e., Jonathan Swift) and baking! (sav-man)
  • This song is a satire on the "Val-speak" which was popular among teenage girls living in the San Fernando Valley region of California. Popular phrases included "totally!", "gag me with a spoon!", and "grody to the max," among others. This song's popularity encouraged many other teenage girls around the the rest of the USA to talk the same way (for whatever that was worth)! (sav-man)
  • Reached #32 on the BILLBOARD charts in September 1982. (sav-man)
  • Frank Zappa's only top 40 hit on the American non-demented charts. (CapSuper)
