Aja is the masterpiece. n o b o d y even comes close . Sorry Beatles and miles Davis.
Steely = musical perfection
Great album by Steely Dan! Donald Fagen is very underrated in his work!!
When I was 14 I used to go my older neighbor's house and they would be jammin to songs like "my old school" and other songs...I loved it.
This is the station...we got it LOL
Good am!
Blk cow.....sd is the best.......! h e y nineteen.... . s h a l l I go on? Rikki don't lose that no.
Redmond, WA. In july
Minds me of college. Studying and????????? ?
Love anything Steely Dan
one of their best songs! Love it!
If u don't realize that the lyrics are smart as u just don't dig it, the music is lagniappe
Form a line boys she's home.
Always thought SD's lyrics were mostly nonsense. It's the music, man!
My fave band one of them! Timeless
? Pat ? Lol
Awsome music. The kind you just kick back and enjoy

I HAVE NOTICED THAT SD FANS HAVE MORE INTERESTING AND INFORMATIVE COMMENTS WHAT DOES THAT SAY ABOUT THERE FANS.BRILLIA N T !
Hey Mark, so they are on tour? Do they still have those three fine a** sistas singing background?
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.
does anyone (i do) know how they got their name
One of SD's best songs - I so admire their intelligent originality

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.
...the subtle use of a horn section
emphasis on instrumental arranging
Love this song !
Can't wait to see them performing this September in raleigh nc

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.
Love Steely Dan, but forgive me as much as I love this song I dont get the lyrics? Who can explain it to me?
Lets break it out
Is steely Dan still touring in 2013?
josie - one of my favorites - love steely dan
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.
Good ol' Josie.
shut up and let the dark brothers get down
another keeper by Dan.
j.heredia
classic wit and subtle sexiness from our heroes
smajor98
Funky too the extreme from the kings!
Then she would be Hosie.
retropat
Was Josie a ho?
Love Steely Dan.Seen them in concert4 or 5 times.they put on a great show & always play all of their hits definetely a classic group you never get sick of listening to.Keep on rockin'!

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!
I never get tired of Steely Dan.
Love Steely Dan... Takes me back to NYC in the 70's. Cool blue funk.
NEVER get tired of this band. LOVE STEELY!!!
Great song! Love playing it!
this stuff is no joke. the most sterile of all musical environments (steely dan in the studio) produces some of the tightest, greasiest funk you'll ever hear.
