Production Note
To prevent browsers crashing from loading too many videos, please 1) include the song title and artist in your text, and 2) paste the URL as part of your last line (not a new line). The latter will provide a link, thus not embed the actual video … but I don’t mind unembedding, so apologies are not necessary.

Ladies and gentleman, many auditioned for the honor of performing Opening Night. Given aFrankangle’s contrarian nature, we start this musical with the traditional first meal of the day by joining nontraditional Frank Zappa at St. Alfonzo’s Pancake Breakfast.

  1. I have been awaiting 9:30 PM with impatience! And voilà! I fretted about the first act, I must admit. I didn’t know if any type of food would be allowed and here you are offering Pancakes for breakfast. Sent my whole idea out the window. Not cool. That said, I had come up with some good ole Genesis and Supper’s Ready! And of course, I did have to include the Live in Montreal version… 😉


  2. Hoping to be spared the afrankangle gong, here is Pink Floyd “Alan’s Psychedelic Breakfast” which is the fifth and final track from the 1970 Pink Floyd album “Atom Heart Mother” written primarily by Nick Mason but credited to the whole group. It is a three-part instrumental. The track features Pink Floyd playing in the background as Alan Styles (a Pink Floyd roadie, who appeared on the back cover of Ummagumma) speaks about the breakfast he is preparing and eating, as well as breakfasts he has had in the past (“Breakfast in Los Angeles. Macrobiotic stuff…”). There are significant breaks before the first and in between all three instrumental parts where only Alan’s muttering and movements, with occasional exterior background noise, are heard.


  3. Oops…forgot, the song is called “Breakfast at Sweethearts” (I got so excited that I actually found a song all by myself without having to go to youtube I forgot to add the title! 😉 )


  4. Well, the play has a wonderful selection of delectable videos. I’m enjoying a great many of them. I liked the song from Frank Zappa. My hubby’s named is Alfonso. hahaha
    I’m going for the snacks. I don’t eat sweets but a sweet sultry song to dance cheek to cheek to is delicious anytime. Candy I couldn’t decide if I liked the Manhattan Transfers versions better because they were dressed to the 9’s or Lola Albright – Candy – 1957 better.


  5. Dear aFrank,
    I was disappointed when I saw that Little Shop of Horrors (the movie/musical), It’s Suppertime:
    was taken. 😥
    But, fear not I found one. I really don’t know this singer. He sounds a bit depressing in the song but it has the requirements. I hope I do better in the next act. The song is Dinner at Eifght – Rufus Wainwright
    Hope you like it … Have a GREAT weekend …!!!
    Isadora 😎
