5. Dirty Love -   John Dissed 

I chose the song because it's my favorite Zappa song out of all the ones I've heard. I asked my friend Hector Ferreiro to help me produce and play bass/percussion. His ideas and performance gave the track its overall feel. Lastly I found singer Myra Washington through an online ad I placed, and she added a perfect sensuality to the mix.
