Love those guys. They have provided me with many earworms, and I can’t say I minded.
Steely Dan is good stuff. Complex, intricate, interesting, musically challenging, and thoroughly enjoyable, when one is ready to actively listen for the little things.
But for all those reasons, not really an earworm. And that’s a good thing.
Fagen & Becker were unrepentant jazz fans & thus a member of my tribe, leading off with Thelonious like that. I’m confident today’s snowflake ankle grabbers would cry yeast-infected tears over this album cover: https://mosaicrecords.tumblr.com/post/145447122464/thelonious-monks-underground-the-story-behind
“They tried to get me to hate white people, but someone would always come along and spoil it.”

Thanks for reprising one of the joys of my misspent yoot.
