#RMF2019: Steely Dan
Day 27 of #RocktoberMusicFest2019
Today’s feature has an infectious sound. Once you start listening to them, you just can’t stop.
Wikipedia tells us this about Steely Dan:
Steely Dan is an American rock band founded in 1972 by core members Walter Becker and Donald Fagen. Blending rock, jazz, latin music, reggae, traditional pop, R&B, blues, and sophisticated studio production with cryptic and ironic lyrics, the band enjoyed critical and commercial success starting from the early 1970s until breaking up in 1981. Throughout their career, the duo recorded with a revolving cast of session musicians, and in 1974 retired from live performances to become a studio-only band. Rolling Stone has called them "the perfect musical antiheroes for the Seventies".
Here are 10 of their songs:
- Rikki Don’t Lose That Number
- My Old School
- FM (No Static At All)
- Do It Again
- Hey Nineteen
- Deacon Blues
- Reelin’ In The Years
- Kid Charlemagne
- Dirty Work
