Yes – Tempus Fugit Lyrics 5 years ago
@[Camel:1813] fan huge fan of this tune... was surprised years back to learn that Trevor Horn (vocalist for this album) was the same artist/producer responsible for the song "Pop Music" and was actually quite an influential producer, "his influence on 1980s popular music was such that he has been called "The Man Who Invented the Eighties"..."

Steely Dan – Daddy Don't Live In That New York City No More Lyrics 5 years ago
This song always hit home because my pop was a raging alcoholic who at one point drove an Eldorado; and my mom's name was Lucille (wasn't a drinker of coke n rum or any other libations) but pops was an absentee husband/father who frequently neglected her/us.

Daddy can't get no fine cigar
But we know you're smoking
Wherever you are

yep, my dad's also burning in hell all right... enjoy, Smokey, I'll see you in due time.

Steely Dan – Doctor Wu Lyrics 5 years ago
I don't think there is very much to interpret here -- strung out and hanging on until that next fix... My best friend growing up had a theory that Steely Dan never toured because they feared running out of and not having access to the China White while out on the road.

@[Mikeofreak:1069] I don't think there is any doubt this song is about the strife in Northern Ireland. Thanks for your posting.

Steely Dan – Glamour Profession Lyrics 5 years ago
@[Hoops:1068] McCann I will go out on a limb and guess that based on your username you are a big Dan fan!

I have such great memories of this tune... even though at the time it was 11 years after Gaucho's release, the LP sounded as crisp as any current release -- then or now! I can recall it like yesterday, my best friend and I driving from NYC back to NJ after partying all night (circa summer 1991).

I wasn't a virgin but was practically one as the only experience I ever had previously was with my high school sweetheart; and we had double-dated with a cute north jersey guido chick I had met the previous week and her friend. After drinking ourselves stupid in the Village, we ended up back at their place in Montclair late night and I got so laid (again, I have to emphasize how sex was still really new to me at the time, was a late bloomer and the girl was fine as hell and far more experienced than my comparably inexperienced high school gf.)

I fondly remember my friend driving us back down the Garden State Parkway, mid-morning, puffing a J and listening to Gaucho... and I just recall how great I felt, how pleasurable Glamour Profession specifically sounded, we didn't say a word, just kinda smiling and nodding to each other as the end jam cruised into the fade... good times, man... good times.
