G Dubya: The gaucho album had a lot of great players contributing didn't it. (Mark Knopfler!) Took a long time to produce this album too.
As you would know Steely Dan are touring at the moment and I'm told they hit the stage with the first song being..........(drum roll).......... "Time Out of Mind". (underrated no more!)

Yeah TZ I just like to hear the answers (cause I've probably got no idea). Always interesting stuff though

More lyric;

SHE'S LOVELY
YES SHE'S FLY
AND YOU'RE AN ORDINARY GUY
HAS SHE FINALLY GOT TO YOU
ARE YOU WITH ME DOCTOR?

There's a kindness to some of the Dan lyrics that challenges the common assumption of smug smart alec.... ness.

What about;

LORD I KNOW YOU'RE A SPECIAL FRIEND
BUT YOU REFUSE TO UNDERSTAND
YOU'RE A NASTY SCHOOLBOY WITH NO PLACE TO GO
TRY AGAIN TOMORROW

This poor messed up friend is not permanently rejected at all. There is an obvious fondness for this silly character who just seems to hang around a lot (now turning up with his new gaucho amigo pal in a spangled leather poncho)...... it's just time for him to go away for a while. Business calls. Come back tomorrow.

There's lots of heart when you look for it. Any Major Dude / Any World that I'm Welcome to / Josie. Any others?

TZ.....the greatest guy to ever live and truly God on Earth...........Hmmmm.

While I admire your enthusiasm I think it's important to note that Steely Dan is not actively working on a cure to cancer.
There have not been any inroads towards the creation of true world peace from Steely Dan.
Come to think of it I don't believe there has been any sacrifical death from Steely Dan that has formed a pivotal moment in mankind's history thereby providing an answer to man's inherant fractured human nature.

Still..... absolutely fabulous musicians and lyricists and there is no way you'll find my concert tickets on E.Bay as was earlier suggested. (I'm looking forward to seeing what they do with Dirty Work.)

Tz hey dude.... Alex ...and all the guys who've added to this excellent discussion...... this has been most enjoyable indeed. Thankyou. Let's open this discussion up to all things of Dan-ness and other musical influences and such. This conversation could last beyond the life of Amazon at the rate we're going.

Millionrainbows: I like your reference to "vocal harmonies actually like horn arrangements in disguise." Good observation.
I always love how Phil Collins used the horn section on some of his early solo stuff and made it sound like percussion in disguise. Have you heard (in particular) the Phil Collin's song "It Don't matter to Me". A fantastic tripling of drums/horns/voice in a way I've never heard elswhere.
