Did you know that Arizona law only allows the ownership of no more than four steely Dans per household?

Always wonder if I am learning any thing on ST well now I Will have to check and see CHEVY CHASE. Old DILDO quotes?? Good thing I'm stuck on the shablet a sub standard tablet that is terrible to use. Tomorow the rains that will bring the big color change to the trees where I climb
I Spent the day scrubbing and send down dirt in hopes of cleaning the project de jue if all goes well the wife's sprained foot will be well enough to do more than belay if not I leave her for Friday while I go a climbing and listening to she also will play w/steely dan:-)

Not just a studio band. I saw them at Shoreline Amphitheater in '93 or so and they were fantastic live. Among the best I've ever seen.

Drive west on Sunset
To the sea
Turn that jungle music down
Just until we're out of town

This is no one night stand
It's a real occasion
Close your eyes and you'll be there
It's everything they say

The end of a perfect day
Distant lights from across the bay
Babylon sisters shake it
Babylon sisters shake it

So fine so young
Tell me I'm the only one

Here come those Santa Ana winds again

We'll jog with show folk on the sand
Drink kirschwasser from a shell
San Francisco show and tell
Well I should know by now

That it's just a spasm
Like a Sunday in T.J.
That it's cheap but it's not free
That I'm not what I used to be
And that love's not a game for three

Babylon sisters shake it
Babylon sisters shake it
So fine so young
Tell me I'm the only one

My friends say no don't go
For that cotton candy
Son you're playing with fire
The kid will live and learn
As he watches his bridges burn
From the point of no return

Babylon sisters shake it
Babylon sisters shake it
So fine so young
Tell me I'm the only one

Brings back my own memories of driving down Sunset to the sea....

This one shows up sometimes on youtube, but then gets taken down. You can listen here for free:

a real treat for any hard core SD fan. I was thinking maybe it belongs in the jazz thread, who knows?

Yacht Rock. . .

I had to pull a GOOG (rhymes with spooge) on that one!

CRACK ME UP!

yacht rock
Another name for the adult-contemporary musical movement in the late 1970's and the early 1980's. It was defined mostly by its smooth sound. Popular Yacht Rockers include: Kenny Loggins, the Doobie Brothers, and Steely Dan.
"Steely Dan plays with the smooth sounds of yacht rock."

AND. . . I just saw that your post was a link. . . goin' there, now!
