Is That You, Frank? No, It's Me, Harlan

|Frank Zappa: Legendary composer, songwriter, singer, bandleader, guitarist, social and political satirist, genius...a scruffy and furry renaissance man.|
Harlan Ellison: Brilliant, prolific science fiction/genre author with over 1000 short stories to his credit over the past 60 years. Hero to many of the leading authors of today. Essayist, screenwriter, irascible gadfly.
What do these two men have in common, aside from the fact that I'm a huge fan of both?
It's the TITLES, baby!
Both men came up with some of the most intriguing, most bizarre, and often most hilarious titles in their respective fields. Which brings us to this quiz.
For each of the following questions, all the five potential answers will be the titles of songs, records, movies, instrumentals, or other creative endeavors by Frank Zappa...except for one, which will be the name of a book or short story by Harlan Ellison. Your mission, if you choose to accept it (and you may as well; I mean, you've come this far), is to select the Harlan creation for each question, and not one of the Frank creations.
Here we go.
