Happy New Year! Let’s start the new year with some Steely Dan. I really didn’t appreciate Steely Dan for a long time. It wasn’t until I joined quiz bowl and Jase took over the captainship that I started to really like them. It was a long process. He started playing it whenever we were on the van for a meet, which was about once a week. After two or three hours of Steely Dan, I had to like it, or risk losing my sanity. A few more hours, and I’d learn to love it. Jase, what have you done? Steely Dan’s songs are mostly quite bitter and angsty and have obscure references. This is a song that has some of the least obscure references out of all their songs, and in addition, has some amazing imagery.
