Steely Dan - Reelin' In The Years
Excellent number, one of the best Steely Dan ever did, kinda on a par with "Ricky Don't Loose That Number"!
It is thought that the meaning behind "Reelin' In The Years," is that he's talking to a former girlfriend who has unwisely chosen someone else.
Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page
has reportedly said that Elliott Randall's guitar solo on "Reelin' In the Years" is his favorite solo of all time. That solo was also ranked the 40th best guitar solo of all time
by the readers of Guitar World magazine.
Rikki Ducornet was the apparent inspiration for "Ricky Don't Loose That Number" due to a friendship Donald Fagen had with her while attending Bard College. Ducornet was pregnant and married at the time, but recalls that Fagen did give her his phone number at a college party while attending Bard and said that she believed she was the subject of the song.
....and I'm listening to "Arcade Fire" Track one: The Suburbs
