Odd Music

Well, cruising in South Florida tonight, top down, blasting some music....

At one point, some Gypsy (Roma) Brass Band music came on my iPod, which elicted an interesting reaction from my father, who proclaimed it "wierd."

Now, I won't do this very often (in other words, my readership is far too small to support an "open thread") but what is the oddest item in your music collection? I'm not talking guilty pleasure - I mean, what is something that doesn't belong????

I have Fred Schneider's first solo CD (he's the male singer in the B-52s). It has a song called "Monster" whose lyrics are something like "there's a monster in my pants and it does a nasty dance...". Also from "Cut the Concrete" - "Cut the concrete, cut it with your feet, cut the concrete, take a piece of the street."

Very odd CD. I shook his hand at the 1995 HFStival.

I also have Captain Beefheart's Troutmaskreplica which was recorded with each musician in a different room of a house - very disjunct with stream of consciousness lyrics and Vliet's vocals (which mimic Howlin' Wolf, but weirder).

Haha - for you, Mike, Capt Beefheart is normal!

My favorite part of Trout Mask Replica are the asterisks indicating that on these tracks Captain Beefheart plays alto and tenor (or maybe it's soprano)saxophones simultaneously. Also on Bongo Fury when Zappa introduces the band, including C.B. on "plastic bags and insanity."
I have a couple CDs from former students who wanted me to comment on their songs, which don't exactly fit with most of my CD collection... then there's Waylon Jennings' Super Hits which I picked up for free.
