Notes About This Song
- Rearranged parts of "Holiday In Berlin, Full Blown" reappeared on the 200 Motels soundtrack as "Semi-Fraudulent/Direct-From-Hollywood Overture."
- Another version of the song on 200 Motels is "Would You Like A Snack?" (which features its own lyrics).
- Words were eventually also added to "Holiday In Berlin", as can be heard on the bootleg Freaks & Motherfu*%!!@#, which features the 11/5/70 concert at the Fillmore West in San Francisco. The Berlin students’ communistic political ideas and the attack on the Mothers was explained in the lyrics.
- Also appears as part of Zappa's one-time stage production Progress?.
