No static at aaaaaaallllll
Somehow I don't think I've ever seen the FM movie. Great soundtrack tho.
no static at all in these bad boys
Definitely hit it languid and bittersweet
It’s a Dan night, boys. Starting with FM and we’ll see where this leads me
Meal prepped and cooked listening to Two Against Nature for the first time in a good bit. Followed up with The Royal Scam.
Mother of God
I kinda love that’s there’s a less than zero chance that Donald Fagen becomes wise to these sweatpants and the guy who designed them because the next Peter Gunz and Lord Tariq
And just for fun
you know what it is tonight
Love getting notifications from this thread. Thanks Tiffin
And we’re into Time Out Of Mind. I guess it’s gonna be Gaucho into Aja
When Josie comes home, so good
She’s the pride of the neighborhood
It’s perfection and grace
It’s the smile on my face
Gaucho is obviously an amazing album but man would it have been different with The Second Arrangement. It’s such a good song with a ton of potential
Aha Shake Heartbreak >>> Aja
You did it! You made the worst post in the history of the-mainboard!!
This remains the best video ever put on YouTube
One of my favorite guitar solos ever on Peg. I could sit there all day and listen to them pick apart their songs on the sound board.
Michael McDonald sure had a good ride with all of the different musical groups/experiences.
It’s kinda easy to Monday morning quarterback the solos on Peg before Jay Graydon’s but watching Fagen and Becker do so is what’s so great about them. They had such a singular vision that’s really only rivaled by that of Brian Wilson.
And as I’ve said before, the way they used Michael McDonald is truly a treat. Before I got into Steely Dan, I only really knew him as the punchline in a joke from the 40 Year Old Virgin but his vocal abilities are incredible.
his version of grizzly bears 'while you wait for the others' is amazing
Yep. They heard the album in their heads before they put it on vinyl. I don't know that I've heard them described along those lines, but I imagine Lennon/McCartney had that going for them.
Seems like I've heard about how McDonald got together with Steely Dan. Can't remember the details and can't find a good article online. This doesn't really help on that, but a good story.
i guess it’s not really a “cover” by definition, but it really is fantastic. Also one of my favorite grizzly bear songs, but i thought it was really cool that McDonald a) even knew who grizzly bear was, and b) thought enough of that song to want to sing it.
It’s perfection and grace
It’s a smile on my face
Everyone complains about music made by protools now but Steely Dan literally created a computerized drummer and named him Wendel
New Suicide Squad trailer had Dirty Work as the background music. Might see the movie on that alone.
Posting here because search sucks and I can’t find the Yacht Rock thread...
Reeling in the years
This can go here considering Brecker is on 3 songs on Gaucho and is on The Nightfly as well. What a beast
All Dan sessions musicians are welcomed
Here’s the thing: I’m holding a mystical sphere
Currently listening to this and it brought me into thread. Perfect.
Under the sun, boys
Pool hit 90 degrees today. Speakers are blaring SD for the rest of the summer.
It’s about that time, boys
Idk but the SD youtube uploaded these 2 videos yesterday
Edit: and another
Donald Fagen is sending us coded messages. It’s some sort of call to action and we must respond appropriately
I'm learning how to meditate
So far so good
I'm building the Andrea Doria
Out of balsa wood
How can anyone not understand they were a jazz band after listening to that?
the influences are really obvious if you know much about Jazz and even the lyrical content- it's from that era when they were kids, down to the name. It's straight jazz and beat literature influences but interpolated through the 70's sheen and format. Original but also authentically and well done enough that nobody would ever think they were coming up with some Frankenstein product. It's perfectly fused
Speaking of Brecker, he and his brother were in a super group in the early 70's- none of their stuff is on streaming platforms that I know of, but it's pretty sick. This might be a hot take, but to me it's Blood Sweat & Tears, but better. The horn section/drums combo is obscene
