Earworm of the Day: Captain Beefheart and his Magic Band - Moonlight On Vermont

A book I read years ago on the hobby of record collecting emphatically stated that women don't like Captain Beefheart.

Of course I'm willing to entertain the idea certain preferences fall neatly along gender lines, but nothing about Don Van Vliet's music screams suspiciously masculine in the way that, say, Megadeath's does. Mostly it's just odd and arty in a way that can't be replicated save for a time machine and some LSD. "Moonlight on Vermont" is probably the most conventional song off Trout Mask Replica, which says a lot.
