Love this song
Rockin beautiful
Summer sounds in Saratoga.... . f o r sure, still feel the vibes from about 5 years back. Cornelius on the sax, good as it gets!
Don't ever chase the Dragon! !
Again...... This band brings me back to summers in my 20's. Driving to the beach. ( Galveston island) or to the bayhouse.... smoking weed drinking Crown and Coke.... and hanging out with some chics. This band has some of the best lyrics. Seems all the songs they write give me a summer feel.
Every Steely track is great....Aja and Gaucho are so jazzy- love it!
Ah, yes. So smooth and moody... love that sax
They got the shapely bodies
They got the Steely Dan t shirt
And for the coup de gras

They OUTRAGEOUS

Ahh , I was in the Navy and life believe it or not was good
Stewly Dan brought me from AM to FM. What a journey.
Listening to a little F.M. yeah.

Em...mostly. . . a c c i d A# in main bend
Running high speed behind a Porsche to Mt. Bachelor back in '78! Steely Dan cranking, smiles on our faces! Good times!
Reminds me of running thru wood beeded curtains in my pj's on hardwood floors in the old vict with a distinct breeze in the air
Perfection
Perfection at its best! Forever 21!
@dsinmi5 - Me too.
I will never get tired of listening to Steely Dan. I always hear something new-- the layers of creativity in lyrics, instrumentat i o n , harmonies, rhythm. Is it just me or are there others who feel the same?
Who is that on sax on FM? Great stuff!
Steely Dan, who Uncle Joe Benson on KLOS radio in LA said many years ago - the band that never had a note out of place!
Sweet stuff.
'..feed her some hungry reggae, she'll love you twice'..uh huh..
Ah, nice to know this is the extended sax solo version... sheer brilliance.
Walter & Donald....
Just have to love SD. Even if I am old school, these are the lyrics that when you dream, these are the words you hear and the melody that completes you.
purrrfect.

Reminds me of a golf trip one year. Priceless!

the Dan... bears repeated listening beautifully, about 32 yrs for FM.
funnnkyyy/.. .
oh yeaaa... Steely Dan
High-heeled sneakers are presumably 70s platform shoes and it's hard to dance with them on... eh?
Whoever typed up the lyrics is a bit off.

First line should be: "Bury the Bible, Mama, it's grapefruit wine."

Second line: "Kick off your high-heeled sneakers ; it's party time."

An all-time favorite of mine. Bit of trivia: on AM stations, the DJs used a sound bite of the "A" from "Aja" to play "A.M." cute.
This song makes me feel delirious... . . smoothness at it's essence.
I was an FM DJ in the early '80's. How true this song rings.
love love love
It's funny how a little Steely Dan smooths out all the wrinkles in the day.

MAGNIFIQUE !!

Oh wow! This version! I have been a hard core Dan fan since about '75 and I have NEVER heard this version of "FM". Thank you Pandora!
This was the title song from the movie 'FM', and the radio station was QSKY in LA. Not only a great sound track but actually a decent movie. Was NOT animated. Buffet and Ronstadt concert footage. 'Interviews' with Petty, REO. Cleavon Little, Eileen Brennan among others. But I DO love this song.
steely dan is awsome, period.
Nobody talking about the drumming and all the drummers who have been with the band, not to mention the percussionis t s . A little mention when it's due.

This was the lead soung on a 70's animated, theatre released , movie by the same title. The movie soundtrqack is excellent.
The sax in the 'uh-huh' version is cool. But if you get a chance, listen to the version on that's actually on Decade. Ends with guitar instead of sax and I think is a little better.

why is the name FM is that referring to radio?
xenolive
um i basically LOVE STEELY DAN.
