    General CommentI.G.Y stands for the International Geophysical Year. (1957) en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…

    Fagen says on the album notes that the album is about him growing up. The sixty seven countries that participated in it seemed to give Fagen the idea that a bright future was on the horizon.

    General CommentThis song invokes images of all those old 50s films you see about "the kitchen of the future" and stuff like that, where everything is automated and robotic and technology solves all the world's problems.

    I think this song is an homage to those sorts of ideals and also pokes fun at how ridiculous and impractical many of those ideas turned out to be..... like the underwater sea tunnel, for example.
