Last of 7 classic songs on the superlative Aja album. Had the pleasure of seeing them perform the entire Aja album last week! If you get the chance, check them out live. They have a great backup band and played for well over 2 hours.

gotta love this band, great tunes, timeless arrangements played by the best studio musicians around. Never get tired of listening!

Bonniems79.. . . We're you a part of the group in any way? What qualifies you as an expert on their writing process? I reject the notion that they were high when they wrote their songs. The poetic qualities, literary references, and arcane themes referenced are too strong and fit too well into melodies to say they were always high. Slanderous. GREAT MUSIC in every way.

Melissa you are misinformed. Steely Dan was named after a dildo in William Burroughs novel "Naked Lunch". Still a great name for a band.

Luv em but u must remembet they r named after a 1960's brand of british condoms. Lol. Explains alot!

They were usually high when they wrote the lyrics. Think it's about the prostitute girl in the neighborhood . They write a lot about prostitutes.

I have always been and always will be a huge Steely Dan fan. Such a uniquely talented group... Layered jazzy instrumentat i o n , insanely intriguing lyrics, highly memorable melodies. I also like to listen to their lesser known tunes.

Josie is a Steely Dan Classic! I saw them last year and the music and musicians have not lost a beat. This track was released some 2 decades ago and it still thumps to this day! Steely Dan Rules!
