Apostrophe by Frank Zappa. The wife requested it and was singing along. Been years since she heard it. Captain Bacchus was there too.

One Size Fits All, Frank Zappa

The album that got me hooked on Frank and the Mothers. Picked it up in '75 when I was stationed in San Diego, quickly became my favorite band. Had been Blue Oyster Cult but there was something about the " climate " in Diego back then made me very receptive to Frank's approach to music.

Btw von Marwitz should check out Sofa No. 2?,

A blast from the distant past. I remember this from my childhood, but this is the first time I've ever seen the band...

Seeing the Apocalypse Now soundtrack on your list reminded me of the water skiing scene, which took me to Devo's cover, and then this snippet from The New Yorker:
Devo had recorded an odd cover of the band’s hit β€œ(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction”—so odd that their label said they needed Jagger’s blessing to release it. Mothersbaugh put the tape in a boom box and pressed Play. As the sounds of the cover filled the room, Jagger sat stone-faced. What he was hearing didn’t sound much like the β€œSatisfaction” he’d written. Keith Richards’s iconic riff was gone, and the original melody was nowhere to be found. Was this a homage, Mick must have wondered, or were they mocking him? β€œHe was just looking down at the floor swirling his glass of red wine,” Casale recently remembered, adding, β€œHe didn’t even have shoes on, just socks and some velour pants. I don’t know what his habits were then, but this was early afternoon and it looked like he had just gotten up.”

For thirty seconds or so, the men sat in silence, listening to the weird robo-funk coming from the boom box. Then something changed. β€œHe suddenly stood up and started dancing around on this Afghan rug in front of the fireplace,” Casale said, of Jagger, β€œthe sort of rooster-man dance he used to do, and saying”—he impersonated Jagger’s accentβ€”β€œβ€˜I like it, I like it.’
