Aja came out in 1977, but was one of their later albums. So 70s into 80s. I still love it.

This song is pretty jazzy, which makes it even more impressive that the lyrics are so solid.

Fascinating that not one Alabama football fan has said (so far) this song is about the Tide.
Outstanding band and song- way ahead if their time. Great rhythms with meaningful lyrics.

One od my favorite albums of all time.

Even though I've probably heard this song a thousand times on radio or from the album it just never seems gets old. It always makes me want to learn to work the saxophone and order a good scotch whiskey.

This song is so good, describing it with words does not do it justice.

Love this song!!!!!

I'm amazed how Steely Dan can invoke such memories in me. This one is from college- my roommate loved Steely Dan, and I thank him for turning me on to them. I cannot find a superlative good enough to say how great this song and album are.
