Moon Unit Zappa, the start of it all, turns 43

I am really enjoying this blog, called Stuck in the 80′.

In 1982, when Moon was just 14, she contributed the spoken words and lyrics to dad Frank Zappa’s song Valley Girl, a tune originally meant to lampoon and ridicule the San Fernando Valley stereotype. Instead, the song had the opposite effect and became one of Zappa’s biggest hits in the U.S. Its success inspired Hollywood to write a movie to capitalize on the phenomenon. Director Martha Coolidge was recruited to the project. She cast a then-barely known actor named Nicolas Cage as the star and a lovely young woman named Deborah Foreman to play the female lead. History was set in motion.
