Z is for Zomby Woof #AtoZChallenge

For this year’s A to Z Challenge, I have chosen the theme of songs about magic. (Fitting for a fantasy author.)

Z is for “Zomby Woof” by Frank Zappa and the Mother of Invention. This song was written by Zappa for the 1973 album Over-Nite Sensation. The vocals for “Zomby Woof” were provided by Ricky Lancelotti. Background vocals were provided by Tina Turner and The Ikettes.

Zappa’s songs were often bawdy, even obscene, and this song is no different. Now while this song may not be about magic, I guess if turning into a Zomby Woof meant you were turning into some sort of zombie/werewolf-type creature it could be magical. But sadly, there is a strong sexual nature to this song which makes it less than magical. The Zomby Woof is a sexual predator. According to the Urban Dictionary, a Zomby Woof is someone who takes part in illegal sexual activities such as rape. But Z was a hard letter to find a magic song, so I will take the turning into a creature aspect as my magical connection.
