Wonderful
Simply another jewel from the brilliant mind of the DON!!!! The melody always stays with me like the smell of momas cooking!
Fagen is never optimistic only to pacify idiots.
Donald Fagen is brilliant
Does anyone know if Walter Becker was in the Army at Ft Bragg, NC in 1968. I knew a guy by that name and was from NJ and was a musician
RB Ala
Steely Dan is the ultimate feel-good music for me...great memories tooling around in our '64 VW bus in No. Calif
Saw steely Dan sat nt in Detroit at the fox and I'm still high from the show 21/2 hrs of pure classic steely Dan the greatest group of our time

Hate to be somewhat morbid... but everyone remembers where they were, who they were with, etc. when they heard about JFK, MLK,Elvis, 9/11, (deaths) etc.

Those are unfortunate 'bookmarks' in folks' lives. For me, the death of Donald Fagen (Walter Becker) will be something that I'll always remember. Here's hoping that moment is decades from now (July, 2013).

LONG LIVE STEELY DAN!
Steely Dan brings back great college memories!
Wish they still made music like this... This whole album is a classic! Fagen IS the man!
This is a good album!

STEELY DAN...one of the greatest groups ever! Haven't heard one song I didn't like
Stella Dan is one of the greatest their music is classy. Linda Indiana
Nobody, I say nobody puts lyrics, harmony, and instrumentat i o n together like Fagan and Becker &Steely Dan.
A Steely Dan song a day keeps the blues away.
We'll be alrite 'til '76..... Oops. Here comes Jimmy Carter.
Wow! Takes me back to the days, when even I ran to catch-up to the Mr. Softee Icecream truck. Lol
Fagen.your the man.
No not flying, "Submarine Cars".
mad4tunes
Where are the flying cars? There were supposed to be flying cars by now!

No, not part of the lyrics...but a clip I heard somewhere that describes how I feel now.

And, no, the Moller Skycar doesn't count. The flying cars were supposed to be affordable.
What a beautiful world this will be
What a glorious time to be FREE!!!

Hey licursii7, try this link for the lyrics: http://www.l y r i c s d e p o t . c o m / s t e e l y - d a n / i - g - y . h t m l , for I.G.Y. The acronym I.G.Y. stands for "Internation a l Geophysical Year," a period from July 1957 to December 1958 that marked the worldwide coordination of a range of scientific activities, including investigatio n s into rockets and satellites that helped usher in the space age.

kdband1: U honestly don't know the lyric to I.G.Y.??? lol
kdband1
where is the lyric link.

Still waiting for my spandex jacket! ;)
I.G.Y. So much hope, so few results. Well, at least we got into space.

I think that's what Donald Fagen is saying. His sardonically optimistic lyrics juxtapose the sorrow melody perfectly. This is my favorite song on the album. (Even though I also love "New Frontier," which finds all the fun things about a bomb shelter. Now that's living.)
word
Man. So retro sexy! There's not even a sexual undertone- yet I'm randy. Why does Steely Dan and Donald Fagen do this to me? Does their music affect anyone else this way? I relish the positive lyrics and chord choices! 2009. What a glorious time to be free.
Best song on the album! I saw Steely Dan in concert @ Jones Beach, 3rd row.
Amazing and they sounded so good.

Dr Wu.
2nd best song on the album, behind New Frontier.
I love this song.
The best "pop-soundin g " single of the 80's to my way of thinking & there were plenty of good ones!!!!
