    Steely Dan Is Fantastic

    They are one of my favorite bands. So upbeat, vibrant - every one of their songs! I would love to see them in concert!

    My Kind Of Blues...

    You call me a fool You say it's a crazy scheme This one's for real I already bought the dream So useless to ask me why Throw a kiss and say goodbye I'll make it this time I'm ready to cross that fine line ----Deacon Blues by Steely Dan

    Aja Tour

    The 1957 Tail-fin Fiasco

    Steely Dan fans - Check out London based band The 1957 Tail-Fin Fiasco. A massive doff of the cap to Mr Fagen & Becker. Not sure how to post the link but you can find them on Soundcloud - It's a terrific thing x

    Steely Dan's Aja, Awesome Music!!

    For me, Steely Dan's "Aja" is the best music for relaxing in the middle of a sunny day, it's just awesome. I wonder if Steely Dan is blind or not? no offense but, he just looks like one especially if he's wearing his glasses, but I don't know if it's Steely Dan though, maybe it's...

    Reeling In The Years

    I may be getting old, but Steely Dan never does. In fact, their old albums, especially, Aja, and Can't Buy a Thrill, sound better to me. These days, Fagan and Becker even seemed to be happy to perform live. Dirty Work, Black Cow, Peg, FM, My Old School they are classics.I can...

    Gorgeous Cover Of...

    Daddy Don't Live In That New York City No More by Steely Dan. The notation under the clip says arrangement by Tom Aversano. I just found this on YouTube. I usually don't like cover bands...especially of SD. But this is an incredible exception.  Very haunting...I simply love...

    Chinese Music

    Aja alone is enough to put Steely Dan in the rock and roll hall of fame. It was the most perfect album.  But their music was the sound track to the 70s to me.  They were mellow without becoming elevator music.  And there was a certain amount of fun in the lyrics, as well...

    What A Shame About Me

    One of the things I like about Steely Dan is that Becker and  Fagan have a soft spot for losers.  Who else would write a song that was sympathetic to someone who pi**ed his life away? I was grinding through my day gig Stackin' cutouts at the Strand When in walks...

    I love to feel the music course through my body. To sway in time with it. Close my eyes and float away on the notes. I may not dance well, but I love to live in the moment.
