I was playing Them or Us to a friend and he got a big chuckle out of Frogs
With Dirty little Lips. Now I seem to remember in an article (Maybe
Society Pages) that the cadence (sp) to this piece is a reference to some
composer's style. FZ named it a specific type of cadence. It was like "The
Zanzini Cadence" or some shit. Anybody know what the fuck I'm talking
about, 'cause I don't.

The cadence in "Frogs" is known as the "Landini cadence," if I remember
the pre-Renaissance segment of Music History 101 correctly. This is the
I-VII-VI-I (in this case, A-G#-F#-A) bit in the chorus. (Tape collectors
out there should cf. the Ft. Collins '80 version of "Dangerous Kitchen.")
Landini, Sanzini, Zanti - more conceptual continuity, I guess.
