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

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!

No not flying, "Submarine Cars".

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.

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.

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.)

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.
