this does not sound familiar but don't I recall a Zappa tune of the same name?  is it the same tune?

The audio fidelity on this is strange. The high end is extremely brittle, like it was converted from 48kHz to 44kHz with no anti-aliasing.
 

huh?

the moment I puffed,
the song got into play,
while I was walking
down
              the way
                                 home.
                                         


Feels a tugging familiarity, checks title. Head explodes. 
If you're getting married play Gotan Project on the reception and become a cliche
Not quite a Spanish Leonard Cohen (by far), but like the vocals and the overall vibe of this one.
aaaaaaaah

{#Hearteyes} this album

thanks for reminding me
{#Heartkiss}
Some Zappa Masterpieces pleeeeaaaze!
I wanna Freak Out, absolutly Free, like Chungas Revenge in Joes Garage.

Or so...

 
Rudy want's to by youz a drink......{#Cool}

Not creepy, IMO, but I could see how you could feel that way. Who is he, anyone know, and what's he talking about? I've only basic Spanish and some of the vocab's new to me - "revancha del tango"? Good to hear Thievery Corporation getting an honorary mention, though.

What horrible screeching.
love love love gotan project - turned up the earbud loud

Nice, kinda Reggae Dub, Brazilian, Jazzy, Hip-Hoppy take on a fine piece of music composition.

I have two heros: Frank Zappa and Mister Rogers. That's it.
Just FYI, it's Argentinian, not Brazilian.  
 
maybe they meant it was sort of "bare", you know? *wink, wink*

A glitched-up version of this would fit nicely on Radiohead's new album.

I have no idea what the guy is saying here, as with Thom Yorke.

Edit: maybe no accordion though.

from the fertile, fetid mind of the late Neon Park. Back to Gotan Project -  perfect Saturday first-cup-what-mischief-can-I-get-into-today music.

Yes, it's creepy, but he can be creepy at me all he wants.

Muy bueno
I'm liking the Gotan Project in general (what I've heard).  This is pretty cool whether it's played quietly or turned up
Zappa! Zappa! Zappa!

I love Gotans version.
a friend of mine has a page about all bands connected to Zappa so if you like to read about Gotan P. go to

more zappa, thanks RP!

RZZZZZ!
Admirable choice for a cover, but I'm afraid the original makes this one pale in comparison for me.

Chunga would be proud. . .

I knew that name sounded familiar!
Any Frank is outstanding, at worse! A very nice homage!

I had some of that Chunga dish at an Indian restaurant last night. Montezuma's revenge looks like a minor stomach problem after that! uuugh...
I am very pleased. When I heard the Zappa bassline my immediate reaction was "oh no! another wanker is ripping someone off" kudos to the Gotans for doing the right thing and "covering" something rather than merely ripping it off (ala Coldplay, Flaming Lips et al..) and it's kind of a nice, laid back, louche cover.
Heh. The Frank Zappa original is awesome. This is, um, interesting, but very listenable in it's own right.
Zappa!
