Im a huge Frank Zappa fan and I found this amazing video and had to upload it, If you enjoy art then you will love this its very abstract.The claymation is done by the legendary animator Bruce Bickford.

City of tiny lites
Don’t you wanna go
Hear the tiny auto horns
When they tiny blow
Tiny lightnin’
In the storm
Tiny blankets
Gonna keep you warm
Tiny pillows
Tiny, tiny, tiny, tiny sheets
Talkin’ bout the tiny cookies
That the peoples eats
Well city of tiny lites
Maybe you should know
That it’s over there
In the tiny dirt somewhere

You can see it any time
When you get the squints
From your downers and your wine
You’re so big
It’s so tiny
Every cloud is silver liney
The great escape for all of you
Tiny is as tiny do
Tiny is as tiny do
Tiny is as tiny do
Tiny is as tiny do

City of tiny lites
Do-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-nt you wanna go
Hear the tiny auto horns
Whe-e-e-e-e-e-e-n they tiny blow
Tiny, lightnin
In the storm
Tiny blankets
Tiny blankets
Are bound to keep you warm
Tiny pillows
Talkin’ bout those tiny tiny tiny tiny tiny
Talkin’ bout them tiny cookies
That the peoples eats
City of tiny lights
May be you should know
Thats it’s over there
Well that is over there
Say that it’s over there
Well it is over there

    Yeah the claymation was done by Bruce Bickford, and also one of the first albums Frank did after the Mothers Of Invention was "Hot Rats" and if you notice there is a rat driving the car, I think thats the Hot Rat LOL

    Song reminds me of flying over cities at night in a chopper. Otherwise the video is pretty cool.

    yeah and equally amazing is this claymation was created before computer animation and morphing, its totally hand-made..

    I actually felt like I was on acid, an amazing song by a mind that never did drugs.
