143. FRANK ZAPPA: Lonely Little Girl

A detailed analysis of the above Frank Zappa composition.

Lonely Little Girl


Another great composition!

If the CD is on pitch, this is in the key of A-Flat!

After a beautiful little I-v intro, the I-v carries over into the first six bars of the verse, then

(the) things they say
a beautiful little sequence of ii-V-iii-VI (Bbm-Eb7-Cm-F)
(to) understand
G Minor!

world for them is too unreal
Ab Major Sharp Eleven! And we weave our way back to G Minor when suddenly we hear
all your children are
some familiar music

... a minor third higher here, and with different effects and a beautiful "Indian sitar-type" ending.
Some musical burps segue us into

Next track
