Ahh, Steely Dan. I could sit and quote their most excellent lyrics to you, my notably absent readers, all night. It's amazing how the most ludicrous gibberish sung by a reedy, squawky little jazz-nerd from upstate New York, can seem so poignant and true...as he croons in "Dr. Wu":
"All night long, we would sing that stupid song...and every word we sang I knew was true!"
I'd saw off my left nose to play in a band like this. Hey its not like I need it anyway. Many people would saw it off anyway for cosmetic reasons. But I am not so vain...
