Can't hot link it from my iPhone. One of my favorites.
I finally got to see them live at an outdoor venue in Orange Beach, Alabama twice. Both times they played that song and it was very obviously it was a crowd favorite!A shame. Becker and Fagen were contemporary songwriters from the old school of clever wordplay (Difford and Tilbrook from Squeeze are from the same school in my opinion).
PS: Just noticed the OP was bamafan64...kind of appropriate...call me Deacon Blue.
I got lucky being able to see Steely Dan live, but I totally screwed up not seeing the Eagles in Shreveport/Bossier City a couple of years ago. Turned out to be their last concert with Glen Frey. Wife and I had planned to go, but somehow we missed it.sad news i've listen live in america last week with my sotd ,hear the news yesterday on french radio , this is one thing i will miss for not seeing live .
The last sentence you wrote is so true. My son is even beginning to appreciate the soundtrack of my life at his age. I must be old. But at least my music is still hot.So many of my favorites seem to be leaving us way too soon. I feel blessed that I was able to take my then 11 or 12 year old son to see them at the Beacon in NYC. He's a budding bass player. Aja. Royal Scam. Katy Lied. Those are my three favs but really they all were good.
When your kids appreciate you and your commentary, you know they are listening. And it makes life so much sweeter.The last sentence you wrote is so true. My son is even beginning to appreciate the soundtrack of my life at his age. I must be old. But at least my music is still hot.
So true my friend. Just tonight I was trying to get some charting done to beat the fiscal year end deadline when he asked me to help him on an idea he had for a photo shoot (he's in school for videography). I dropped the work and helped. There are probably a million dad's that wish their 17 year old son would even speak to them, let alone ask for assistance with something important to them. He has no idea how much I love him, but I hope he will be twice the dad I am.When your kids appreciate you and your commentary, you know they are listening. And it makes life so much sweeter.
